tenced to three years and n'ui*. 
months in the stale prison aud- 
to pay a fine of 81,000 by Judge 
Iugraham, in the court of oyer and

tion for a now trial was denied, but

day next •- 

Stephenson was convicted December 
12. The charge against him was brib- 
ery in receiving four baskets of peaches 
from Martin N. Edwards, a produce 
dealer, at No. 153 Duane street, a par- 
tial consideration for allowing Ed- 
wards to violate the law by occupying 
the sidewalk to facilitate the transac- 
tion of his business. 

Policeman Thome was mentioned as

was indicted. Subsequently Thorne 
made a confession, in which he stated 
all he knew of police corruption and

Some of the Pacific coast states have

Is answer to a request which came 
from several patriotic American citi-

The New York philanthropists who 
started a plan last winter of lending 
money to deserving poor people on the

repayments satisfactory enough to 
make the plan self-supporting. 

A Central Pacific railway land

larger scale than ever. One dealer in 
fruit trees in this city has sold in the 
neighborhood of 250,000 trees this sea-

now as ever. 

The success that attends the efforts 
of the Michigan fruitgrowers the past 
four or five years, and especially last

grain to fruit. 

The quarter of a million trees sold 
will go to farmers along the western

The largest demand has been for 
peach trees, with plums second on the 
list, and then pears and apples. 

Of late years the Michigan apple has 
deteriorated in quality and quantity,

Washington, Dec. 2s.— One of the 
most delicate and intricate questions 
ever submitted for a legal opinion to 
the department of justice has been 
asked of Attorney General Olnoy by 
the treasury -department. It is wheth- 
er stamp collectors have the right to 
print and sell fae-similes of United 
States an*, foreign postage stamps.

The bi?st engravers and printers are 
employed on this work, and, while 
Chief of the secret service, does 
not chart's, that any such stamps, 
either fo gn or domestic, are used il-

ity for fraud on revenue is startling. 
Iu unscrupulous hands sueh stamps 
could be used for wholesale fraud. As 
to foreign F*tt°mps, the United States, 
by its treatbs with the various powers, 
is committed, tf. prevent the counter- 
feiting of obligations of foreign nations 
of any kind, and stamps by law are 
held to be obligations, so that the ques- 
tion assumes international relations.

With A Loss of SIOO.OOO. 

Atlanta, Ga., Dec. 28.— The old Cap- 
itol building nt Forsyth and Marietta 
streets caught fire at 2:40 o'clock 
Thursday morning. The_blaze started 
in the southwest corner of the build- 
ing and either in the fourth or fifth 
story. The flumes burned rapidly and 
in 10 minutes .had a good headway. A 
high wind was^lowing, and when the 
flames broke and leaped skyward 
sparks were carried for a long distance 
to the east and northeast, threatening 
other buildings. 

The building, which is a five-story 
brick, belongs to Yenable Uros., who 
paid $125,000 for it a few years ago. It 
is presumed that the property is cov- 
ered by insurance. It is occupied by 
fifty or more offices. -^Jacobs, the drug-

— Washinot on, D ee. 2-8. — If any effec- 
tive suit is to be brought against the 
incorat tax on sonstitutional grounds 
it must be deferred until after the tax 
has actually been collected. A great 
deal of Importance has been attached 
to the suit of John G. Moore, of the firm 
of Moor? A Schley, New York, brought 
in the district court to restrain 
the commissioner of internal rev- 
enue from collecting the income tax. 
Mr. Mooie's claim is that, as a stock- 
holder in. certain corporations which 
are to be taxed upon their net profits, 
the government can not, under the 
constitution, again tax him as an indi- 
vidual for sharing those profits. The 
report that a syndicate was back of 
Mr. Moore in his suit is denied by 
that gentleman, who insists" that all 
hovwr and expense of the motion is h» 

The commissioner of internal reveune 
has 1 een summoned to appear before 
the district court to show cause wh3 - 
an injunction should not be granted 
against him in the collection of the 
income tax. pending a decision on Mr. 
Moore's plea. The counsel, which the 
New York broker has employed, is of 
the most imposing character, and his 
contention, seemingly based on good 
grounds, has created a hope in the 
minds of many that the income tax

In the treasury department the sec- 
retary and the commissioner of inter- 
nal revenue are proceeding with delib- 
eration in the preparation of all the 
machinery necessary for the collection 
of the taxes imposed undvi the income 
feature of the new tariff law. Thej* 
treat with calm indifference the legal 
proceedings instituted by Broker 
Moore, and insist that his suit will 
amount to nothing. 

They base their confidence on section 
3224 of the revised statutes. This act 
of congress is comprised in a two-line 
paragraph, slal'—^ Ttiiu- groat distinct- 
ness that: "No suit for the purpose of 
restraining the assessment or collec- 
tion of any tax shall be maintained in 
any court." 

The records of the internal revenue 
bureau show an unbroken line 'of 'rul- 
ings and decisions in favor of the gov- 
ernment in all suits to restrain the col- 
lection of taxes or in attempts to 
'juestion the constitutionality of any 
of the revenue laws. 

Among the numerousreferencescited 
in the treasury department as having 
been decided under section 3224 is the 
suit of the Delaware Railroad Co. vs. 
Prettyman) where it was decided that 
"the constitutionality of a law can not 
be inquired into in an injunction suit." 
Another decision in the state railroad 
tax cases (2d Otto 613) holds that a 
"collector can not be restrained from 
collecting an assessment by injunc- 

A third decision under the same law 
declares that "the courts will not in- 
terfere by mandamus with the execu- 
tive officers of the government in the 
jxercise of their official duties." This 
principle was laid down in the suit of

Mr. Kasson is justified in feeling 
some anxiety on that point, and in 
order to relieve his mind the Times as- 
sures him that McKinloyism doesn't 
mean "national protection." What it 
means is the robbery of the many to 
enrich the few, impoverishing the 
millions to add to the plunder of the 
trusts, and reimbursing the manufac- 
turing barons for the millions of dol- 
lars they contributed to the republican 
corruption fund in 1S83 and 1892 in or-

Racine, Wis., Dec. 28.— The family 
Of Bernhart Solbrieter, composed of 
nine persons, was da ngerously poi-

the family eating head cheese that had 
been boiled in a copper kettle. It can 
not now be told at this time if all of 
the family will recover, some of them

Washington. Dec. 29.— That the in

much legal battling is evident. The 
suit of John O. Moore, of New York, to 
secure an injunction against tho com- 
missioner of internal revenue will be 
thrown out of court under section 3224 
of the revised statutes, which prohib- 
its such-a.suit.being.naalutaiiic'1 in any 

It is the desire, however, of the law- 
yers interested, as well as of a large 
class of eitizens who believe the in- 
come tax unconstitutional, to get a 
hearing, and other expedients will lie 
resorted to in order that the question 
may be brought before the highest le- 
gal tribunal. Charles A. , Hess, the 
well known New York lawyer, was 
in c en t' tiltation Friday with a niimlmr . 

of governnientrOllieia l s o n thi s subject. 
Mr. Hess represents several large 
capitalists in New Y'ork who have de- 
termined to light The rnrmne~ta~s. "aTiTT. 
as a result of his interviews Friday, 
he will advise his clients to wait until 

ship gold to this country to pay for 
them. The large net export of gold 
that year shows that they did not do 
it. The Journal admits this, but says 
the balance of trade, though in our 
favor, as the phrase is, was not so much 
in our favor as it might have been. 
Why was not the 'balance of trade 
more in our favor? Was not the Mc- 
Kinley bill passed to check importa- 
•iotis? If it be said it was not yet in 
full operation, we pass on to the fiscal 
year ISss, when it was certainly get- 
ting in its work, and the balance of 
trade was what is called adverse. This 
year we exported 887,500.4b3 in gold.the 
largest amount ever exported in a sin- 
gle year. This showed clearly enough 
that the McKinley bill was not bring- 
ing gold from Europe. 

Now. so far as the trade balance is 
concerned there is practically no dis- 
pute that it would be paid in gold if 
there were no other causes operating. 
Kilt other causes arc always operat- 
ing. Hence, if we assume that an j 
adverse balance of trade will neces- 
sarily cause an outflow, or a balance 
in our favor an inflow, of gold, we 
shall continually find statistics refut- 
ing our theory. Iu the fiscal year 1894, 
as above stated, we exported more than 
we imported by some S237. 000,000. 
This was an ideal year according to_ 
the repuhlicait theory, as the balance iation. 
of trade was so largely "in our favor." | people 
Imports were really checked, as the 
republican platform of 1888 demanded. 
Still everybody knows it was a bad 
year for business. The simple reason 
why we did not import more was be- 
cause we could not afford it, our re- 
sources having been crippled by the 
Sherman act panic. Ky republican 
logic we ought to have imported, net,

Denmark Wants Our Lumber. 
Washington, Dec. 28. — U.' S. Consul 
Kirk, at Copenhagen, in a report to the 
state department, calls attention to the 
fine opportunity for the development 
of the American lumber business af- 
forded by the opening of the free port 
of Denmark. The lumber can be stored 
without payment of duty until sold for 
use in Denmark. American white oak 
is very popular and there is also a good 
market for poplar, walnut and pitch 
pine. All of the lumber exported to 
Denmark should be well seasoned.

The People of the W est Mot In Favor ol 
Hlffher Taxes. 

A republican politician in the far- 
off territory of Oklahoma expressed a 
popular truth when, a few days ago, 
he said: "The west is not stuck on a 
high tariff." 

Nobody is "stuck on'' a high tariffr 
except its beneficiaries. Nobody wants 
to pay any more taxes than he can 
help and everybody wants the necessi- 
ties of life at such a price that they 
can be readily obtained without too 
much toil and effort Not only the 
west, but the east, is not "stuck on" a 
high tariff. A high tariff is high tax- 
The taxation is borne by the 
and as it is impossible that 
I everybody should profit by taxing him- 
self so it is equally impossible that 
everybody should profit by high tariff 
which means high taxation. 

The days of a high tariff are over. 
No one of authority in the republican 
party pretends to favor a return to the 
McKinley tariff. No party will go be-

The saloon-keepers and the tem- 
perance ]>eople of Indiana are going 
to make the next session of the In- 
diana Legislature lively and inter- 
esting. Owing to the attitude of 
the Republicans in the Legislatures 
of the past few years, on the whisky 
legislation, the temperance* people 
have reasons to believe they will 
come to their assistance in the 
adoption of laws placing greater re- 
striction on the sale of whisky, 
while, on the other hand, the Sa- 
loon-keepers' League, it is said, ob- 
tained promises from the Republi- 
cans during the last campaign, that 
will secure the passage of laws that 
will secure to the saloon-keepers 
greater immunity as retail dealers. 
As these two elements are antago- 
nistic in their demands, they are 
very likely to cause the Republican 
majority in the Legislature of that 
State considerable. trouble.

Coxghessman McCrkaky is said 
to be the man who can harmonize 
all the Democratic factions, and 
carry Kentucky in the race for 
Governor by an old time majority. 
McCreary wants to be United States 
Senator,but if convinced that thesuc- 
cess of the Democratic party in the 
State depends upon his candidal y 
for Governor, no doubt he would 
willingly yield, but then can Har- 
din and * Clay 6e convinced that 
with either of them as the party's

Mr. Carlisle has written a letter 
in which he positively declines to 
become a candidate for either Gov- 
ernor or United States Senator, but 
he signifies his intention to take 
part in the next State campaign 
and do what he can to unite and 
bring mo me entire Democratic 
vote. With Carlisle on the stump 
the campaign will he full of enthu-

Congressman I'ayxtkr will re-

The entertainment at the Court

by a large and appreciative audience, 
and the efforts of the little "tots" 
were received with hearty applause 
from every part of the house. Some 
oft he children that took part areverv 
small, but the very creditable man-

willing little hearts never engaged

To the Editor of thr. Jtrmrdn-. 

Please allow tnc space iu 
through which to express 
menu toward the people of Burlington 
and vicinity. 

A notice appeared iu the Rwohiikk 
last week of my resignation of the pas- 
torateofthe Burlington Baptist Church. 
Tliis step was not taken because of any 
unkind feeling toward the church or 
community, but because T think a 
change in the pastoral relation will l>e 
for good of the church and cause at that 
place. During my four years labor with 
the church I have had many pleasant 
experiences— a few things, linxexet^ - 
have transpired to mar the feelings of 
happiness of both pastor and i>eople 
Vet In adversity, as well as In prosperi- 
ty, my people have stood by me so 
confidently and faithfully that Jhe 
wannest feellnga oT gratitude toward 
them will ever lie cherished by me. The 
kind hospitality extended to me. not 
only by the memlientof my church, 
but by the entire citizenship of Bur- 
lington aud vicinity could not be sur- 
passed by any people. I have reasons 
to believe that these sentiments of kind 
esteem not only exist on my part, but 
as I go from Burlington I will be kind- 
ly rememl»ered by a host of friends. 

Iu this connection I will try to ex- 
press my thanks for a handsome gift 
presented to me by a number of my 
Burlington friends as a Christmas pres- 
ent. I appreciate It not merely because 
of Its intrinsic value, but because of the 
sentiments which prompted the gift. 
While I feel extremely unworthy of 
such esteem, yet I will try to so deport 
myself as not to abuse the confidence 
wfiich my friends have reposed iu me. 
Now in conclusion, I will say that I 
feel it is under the guidance of Provi- 
denoe that I withdraw from the official 
relation with the Burlington Baptist 
Church. I do not know, as yet, whith- 
er myTot will be cast for labor during 
the unemployed half of my time, but 
wherever my steps shall be directed, 
aud under whatsoever circumstances I 
may be placed, I shall ever cherish The 
kindest memories and fondest senti- 
ments for all my Burlington friends.

Be Just and Fear Not, 
7"e tht Editor of ihe Reeordrr j 

In you!' taaiW or week belore last 
ihoreNvas one or two items from here 
that we take exceptions to, aud beg 
your correspondent at this place not to 
say anything in regard to qu,r ulmrch 
aiid its ministers, uuless it is some- 
thing complimentary, which Bros. 
Clark and Hlner surely deserved. "Hl- 
uer has gone- home," is one of the 
items. Could he not have been a little 
more courteous and. said Rev. Hiner ? 
|t would hayo read a great deal better 
and been more appropriate, "R la sh> 
gutar the Methodists nave had noaddU 
tious," or wonls to that eftfect. This 
easts retlectioTjs on the church, causing 
persons not members to believe that all 
is not harmony, which is just the con- 
trary, as the holiday exercises at the 
church will attest. Let your corres- 
pondent, who we have the kindest re- 
gards for, remember that he should be 
"just and fear not and In bis heart aat- 
iv gentle pleadings to all." ■ ~ ,

Tho Work Ha Doe*. 

How much does a newspaper man 
write in a year? An old newspaper 
worker has sat down and figured It 
out. He figures that he writes an aver- 
age of a column and a half every day, 
except for his Sunday paper, when he 
contributes threecolumns. This makes 
twelve columns a week, and, allowing 
for two weeks' vacation, he hns fifty 
weeks in a year, In which ~thHe~ he 
turns out 840,000 words. An ordinary 
book of short stories contains about 
40,000 words, therefore his year's labor 
is equivalent to twenty books. At this 
rate of comparison tho feat of Marion 
Crawford in publishing two books per 
annum does not strike the newspaper 
man as an incredibly hard task, even 
allowing for the extra amount of 
thought involved in story writing. Mr. 
liowclls considers a thousand words a 
good day's work. Thomas Janvier is 
satisfied with four hundred words, or 
u little over a quarter of a column.—

ing Delhi for Great Britain. Take this 
for the first sermonic lesson. 

Another thing you must sec if you go 
to Delhi, though you leave many- 
things nnseen, is the palace of the mo- 
guls. It is an inclosnre one thousand 
yards by five hundred. You enter 
through a vaulted hall nearly four 
hundred feet long. Floors of iioreii- 
; tine mosaic, and walls once emeralded 
j and supphired and carbuncled and dia- 
i monded. I said to the guide: "ishow us 
where once stood the peacock throne." 
"Here it was," he responded. All the 
• thrones of the earth put together 
I would not equal that for costliness 
; and brilliance. It had steps of sil- 
ver, and the teat and arms were of 
i solid gold. It cost about SloO.uOUtitJO. 
j It stood between two peacocks. 
^thc feathers and glumes, of which 
i were fashioned out of colored 
! stones. Above thc throne was a 
life size parrot cut out of one emerald. 
Above all was a canopy resting onji 
columns of gold, the canopy fringed 
with pearls. Seated here, the emperor 
on public occasions wore a crown con- 
taining, among other tilings, the Koh- 
inoor diamond, and the entire blaze of 
coronet cost Sl0..r.().OO0. This superb 
and once almost supernaturally beau- 
tiful room has 
marble wall letters of 
which were translated to me from Per- 
sian into English as meaning: 

i-th thrVr he an Kden of Miss, 
That Is this, is this, is this, is this. 

But the peacocks that stood beside 
the throne have Hown awav, taking all i grease 

ing at Delhi came on me like an incu- 
bus. But the niorn ing' began to look 
through the window of our jolting raU 
ear, ami the sunlight poured in on my 
pillow, and in my dreams I saw the 
bright colors of the English flag hoisted 
over Delhi, where thc green banner of 
the Moslem had waved, and the voices 
of the wounded and dying seemed tube 
exchanged for the voices that wel- 
comed soldiers home again. 

And as the morning light got briiriit- 
er and brighter, and in my dream I 
mistook the bells* at a station for a 
church bcrb hanging in a minaret, 
where a Mohammedan priest had mem- 
bled his call to prayer. I sc^mi'd to 
hear a chant, whether by human or an- 
gelic voices in my dream I could not 
tell, but it was a chant about "peace 
and good will to men." And as tha 
speed of the rail train slackened the 
motion of the car became so easy as we 
rolled along the track that it seemed 
to me that,a,ll,the di-trcss ami contro- 
versy and jolting and wars of the world 
had ceased, and in my dream I thought 
we iiau come to the time when ".lie 
ransomed of the Lord shall return and

and sighing shall fle? awav."

' paradises are not built ont of stone: 

I are not cut in sculpture; are not paint-

j precious stones; do not spray the cheek 

, with fountains: do not offer thrones or

; and sculptor's pencil may not sketch,

the grace of God can achieve, and if 

the heart be right all is right, and if 

i the heart be wrong all is wrong. Here 

I endeth the second lesson.

23d September, 185T, aged 35 years. 

With the guns and men Gen. Nich-

to this walled city filled with devils. 
What fearful odds! Twelve hundred 
British troops uncovered by any 
military works, to take a city sur- 
rounded by firm aud high masonrv, on 
the top of which were 1 H_giuis and de- 
fended by 4u.(MH) foaming Sepoys. A 
larger percentage of troops fell here 
than in any great battle I ha 
know of. The Crimean

percentage of 

the fallen was 17.48. but the percentage 
of Delhi was 37.9. Yet that city must

such courage as had never been rccord-

As I thought what a brain the archi-

I thought what an opulent ruler that 
must have been who gave the order for 
such vastnessand symmetry, I was re- 
minded of that which perfectly ex-

through his blackness. His hair he al- 
lows to grow long, but, instead of 
hanging on either side of his head in 
long cords, as is the case with the 
Somalia, it stands out-all round like a 
halo, its jetty-woolly blackness all the 
more, apparent from the polish which, 
in the form of grease, the owner ap- 
plies. The hair seems to rise straight 
up from the forehead in a wall of some 
three or four inches, and from there 
spreads out In a solid, almost dense, 
mass over the head, the surface being 
thick and woolly. A few carved hair- 
pins and an ostrich feather often add 
to the native's appearance a touch of 
dandyism. Fine, pleasant-looking fel-

One of the chief advantages of these 
bins is that they are 24 feet deep and 
the feed is raised to the top of the 
barn by a rope and emptied into them, 
thus saving a large amount of area on 
lower floor. The studding is made of 
lixl-inch material and sided up with 
surfaced hemlock, which is cheap, rat 
aud mouse proof, and having the 
edges beveled so as to incline toward 
the inside of the bin, Is just as good as 
matched material. 

Such bins can be economically con- 
structed on the inside of two-story 
barns, extended from the square to the 
ground on lower story, with doors 
opening at intervals on the side, so 
that they can- be e a sily fi l le d w it h

after grain is out, used for feed stuffs 
Without doubt such- bins can bi 
more cheaply built and more econom- 
ically roofed than those which spread 
over ijo much territory, with an ex 
travagant waste at the top, besidei 
a wante of room for passageway, ai 
the doors at base close up the open- 
ings securely, so that no extra expensi 
seems necessary to make them a com

Tokio, Japan, Dec. 21.— (Correspond- 
ence of the I'nitcd Press, per steamer 
China.)— Full investigations goto show 
that considerable modifications mast 
bo applied to the first reports circu- 
lated as to the needless ferocity on tha 
part of the Japanese troops and land 
transport corps engaged in the capture 
of Port Arthur. Two circumstances 
unquestionably did impart exceptional 
quality to the fighting of the Japs. 

One was the ruthless murder of their 
wounded and the horrible mutilation 
of their dead in days immediately pre- 
ceding the final assaults. The other 
was the fact that the Chinesesoldiers 
used the town of Port Arthur as' a 
refuge after the fall of the forts, and 
that many of the citizens had been 
armed by order of the Taotai. 

The defeated braves, escaping into 
houses in the town, threw civilian sur- 
coats over their uniforms and resisted 
capture so resolutely that the fighting 
at one stage assumed a house-to-house 
character, in which civilians also took 
part. The confusion inevitable under 
such circumstances, heightened by the 
pitch darkness of a stormy November 
night, seems to have caused some fath- 
er wild use of swords and firearms, 
suiting in the death of 
and children 

remnant of a fleet which once num- 
bered five hundred ships.

Hut the Japs indignant- 
ly denied that any soldiers wittingly 
leveled a rifle or raised a sword against 
a noncomhntant civilian, still less 
against a woman or child. After all, 
the arithmetic of casualties shows that 
There was little margin for these al- 
leged excesses. 

There seems to be little doubt that 
Emperor Kwaug Su has conferred on 
(len. Von Ilanneken a commission such 
as no foreigner ever before held in the 
middle kingdom. Ilanneken is said to 
have been placed in such a position 
that he has direct access to the throne. 
He is empowered to raise and equip an 
nrmy competent to defend the empire, 
nnd to fill its upper ranks with Euro- 
pean officers, llnmor alleges that he 
is engaged in procuring several hun- 
dred of his compatriots from Germany, 
and that German arsenals will be found 
willing to supply all necessary war 
material on credit, trusting to be re- 
couped when peace is restored. 

Viceroy LI recently submitted to the 
throne a most imposing statement of 
the military bulwarks surrounding tho 
throne. It appears that his majesty, 
Ewung Su, rendered solicitous for the 
safety of his capitnl by the constantly 
arriving reports of Japanese victories, 
asked the great earl what measures 
)iad been adopted to check the final 
advance of the foe. Earl Li replied 
that they hud a quarter of a million 
of men at the northern approach of the 
capital, fifty thousand at the eastern, 
one hundred thousand at the southern, 
an unstated number of thousands in 
Tien-Tsin. at the headquarters of tho 
viceroy himself, and a big Tartar army 
in I'ekin. Ih short, Li's report shows 
half a million of men under arms to 
protect the capital. Nevertheless 
Kwang Su has packed his trunks, and 
is ready to tty at a moment's notice. 

What is known ns the strong foreign 
policy party in Japan commands a ma-

Wahiiinoton, Jan. ?.— The senate de-

regard to Hawaiian matters haR elicit-

follows: The attention of the president 
having been called to a hint thrown 
out in the senate discussion on Friday 
that the visit of a certain "commit tee 
of royalists from the Hawaiian Islands" 
was connected in some way with the 
departure of American ships from that 
locality, the president said: Of course, 
such an Insinuation is very absurd. 
Its propriety and tho motive behind it. 
I am sure, can safely be left to the 
judgment of. fair and right thinking 
Americans. I am entirely willing 
that all our people should know

After this note had neen submitted to me 
I prepared In writing with some care a reply to 
the question It contained, to li« reod by roe to 
the commissioners at our meeting. I intended 
lo avoid all missunclcrst'inciing and misconcep-

Dr. Tnlniut'e Una a Striking Illustration 

Ulven To One of His Sormoiia DoriiiR lis 


New York, .Ian. 7.— Rev. Dr. T. De- 
Witt Talmage preacheel at the Acad- 
emy of Music Sunday afternoon to a 
sympathetic audience of fully .1.000 

He had been preaching on the evils 
of drink and other vices, when a young 
man, very, drunk, slowly and very un- 
steadily made his way down the aisle 
until he stood directly in front of tho 
stage. There he surveyed the people 
sitting in the front row, and, after 
looking them well over, remarked, in 
a voice that could be heard in the top 
gallery: "I protest." Dr. Talmage 
kept right on with his sermon. The 
stranger waved his hand at the stage, 
and cried out louder than ever: "Doc- 
tor, I protest." 

Some one in the rear of the house 
shouted: "Put him out." and two ush-

San Fp.ANcist.-o, Jan. 7. — Rev. Father 
Peter D. Brady, rector of the parish of 
■■t. Mary's college, has been the virrri-trr 
af a fiendish assault in his own house, 
••ceeiving several dangerous wounds. 
At S p. m. a well dressed man called at 
ihe rectory, asking to see the priest on 
business. He was shown into a dimlv 

lighted pnrlor and when the priest en- 
ter sd demanded money. "May-be I 
have no money for you," answered 
Father lirady. With oaths and vile 
mimes the stranger sprang at the priest 
with an open knife, stabbing him above 
the left eye, turning the blade nnd 
making a triangular cut. Father 
lirady tried to push his assailant away, 
his right hand touching the stranger's 
face. The villain caught the priest's 
finger in his mouth, biting through the 
bone. He still gripped the finger with 
his tee' 1- wean wh H o stabbing Brady 
through Ihe nostrils, on the check ami 
cutting his mouth, so that it was an 
inch larger. Then he beat the priest 
into insensibility with his fists ami 
quietly left tho house. Father Brady 

w a s afterwards discovered by h i s 

housekeeper. Physicians believe he 
will recover.

Vancoi'vf.r, B. C, Jan. 7.— Mr. Fos- 
ter, ex-secretary of state of the I'nited 
States, who is now here awaiting the 
sail of the Empress of Indis. for Japan, 
was interviewed by an Associated 
Press reporter. Mr. Foster stated 
that his mission here has been much 
misrepresented by many papers, and 
he wished to set forth his position 

At the request of the Chvnese govern- 
ment he had oonsented to act n-s coun- 
sel to the Chinese peace commission- 
ers, and expected to meet the two of- 
ficials appointed to act in that capacity 
at Kobe. The negotiations will be 
carried on at Hiroshima, the, 'resent 
headquarters of the Japanest army 
and temporary seat of government. He 
(Foster) did not expect to be allowed 
to attend the sitting of the peace com- 
missioners, a.s all deliberation's would 
be carried on in private. He will sim- 
ply act as counsel and adviser in the 
matter, and altogether in a private ca- 
pacity, his appointment not being con- 
nected in any way with the I'nitcd 
State's government. Regarding the 
length of his absence, Mr. Foster was 
unable to give any opinion, and de- 
clined to discuss the probable terms of 

A Street Duel. 

Charleston. Mo., Jan. 7.— Joe Ed- 
wards and Bret Crawford, two Negroes, 
engaged in a duel on the street in the 
business center of the city. The 
trouble arose over a crap game, and 
the dozen shots fired did more damage 
to bystanders than to the belligerents. 
Lawrence Glover, a prominent young 
man, received one of the bullets in the 
bowels, and his recovery is doubtful. 
Deputy Marshal John Dickmeyer wns 
shot through the thigh while attempt- 
ing to arrest the Negroes. Edward's 
received a bullet in his arm, and Craw- 
ford's scnlp was cut by another. Both 
men were arrested and lodged in jail.

quite unprecedented. 

"The output of boots ami shoes has

Outside this country wheat production 
has not increased enough to justify a

the accumulation is largely due to false

Character Told in YYrlnklvK. 
An Italian scientist. M. Montegazzo, 
has written an essay upon the seience 
of wrinkles. He believes one's history 
can be largely told by the lines upon 
the face. Entering into a description 
of the different varieties and their 
meanings, he says: -'Horizontal lines 
across the forehead are found even iu 
children who are rickets .or idiots, and 
tliat being out in the sun with the eyes 
unshaded will produce them prema- 
turely, but they are natural at forty or 
earlier. Vertical lines between tiie 
eyes denote thought and study, .since 
deep concentration contracts ihe eve- 
brows; grief and worry produce the 
same effect, and, frequently repeated, 
e ither leaves a permanent fold in the 

skin. Arched wrinkles just above the 
nose indicate extreme suffering, either 
mental or physical. The earliest 
wrinkles of all and the most unavoid- 
able, arc those which run from either 
"sidrrof- the nostril "down to the mmitrrr

Passing the legal point ami leav-

tion as to" whether a Judge has 
technically the right t<> refuse to 
honor a re qui s ition, we have to say 
that on the broad grounds ofhu-

liave acted wisely ami well. The 
pentinient of the community will 
support him in the position which 
he has taken and in the implied re- 
buke to the lawlessness which in 
the matter of lynching obtains in 
Kentucky. ,

After reviewing the claims set

district would think after reading 
the preacher's notice that he ban 
carried the distrct by l.">00 or 2;O06 
majority on a fair count. When a 
preacher leaves the pulpit for politics 
he above all other class of men 
need* watching. They use their re- 
ligious cloak as a blind to the un- 
suspecting, and for the reason they 
ar n ministers ol the Gospel people 
should not suspect them capabl e of 
doing anything wrong. A political 
preacher will stoop to more and

-class of ...Mi. There is not one - half 
dozen Republicans in Morgan coun-

politics and the election of Novem-

Hopkins claims is true, and a great 
many do not think Hopkins be- 
lieves his own statement. It is the 
$10,000 salary the preacher is after.

Mr. - JLcwis Rice a fine locdiiug^ 
wealthy — widower — farmer, of . t he

effect was to make him throw up liis 
head and square his shoulders, yet his 
nervous system was »o highly strung 
that even a flesh wound became dan- 
gerous in liis case. In 1851, while 
crossing the Nubian desert from Ko- 
rosko to Abu llamed (where Col. Stew- 
art and his companions, sent down by 
C'ol. Cordon, were treacherously slain 
in 1SS4,) Peel dismounted from bU 
camel to give water from his store to 
a dying bird. To this tender-hearted 
man it appeared that our bluejackets 
should be encouraged to stand up to 
their guns like men, and he asked four 
of us— two diamond's and two queen's 
— to set the example in the battery by 
always walking erect and without un- 
due haste.. 

Next day he, to my knowledge, al- 
though 1 did not see it, gave us a grand 
example. A shell weighing forty- tw o 
pounds came through tho parapet and 
rolled into the centre of a small group 
of men, who threw themselves flat on 
the ground, which would not, however, 
huvo saved those nearest, f ur there 
were several boxes of powder on the 
ground, then being passed into the 
magazine. Peel, stooping down, lifted 
the shell, and, resting it on his breast, 
carried it back to the parapet, and, 
stepping on to the banquette, rolled 
the shell over the superior crest, on 
which it immediately burst. 

The following- day I had been re- 
lieved and was eating my ration— salt 
fork aud biscuit^on one side of a gun, 
when a shell burst on the top of the 
magazine, on the other side of the 
gun. It created some trepidation, al-

The unity with which ihe republican 
se n ators voted in defense of the sugar 
trust interests the other day would 
command a (miration its an evidence of 
party discipline, if it didn't imply ve- 
nality in the sacrifice of public inter- 
ests to u dangerous »,„! corrupt mo- 
nopoly. Every r epublican senator 
who voted cast the inllucucc of his 
voice with the sugar trust, and 
every republican senator who was, 
present and not paired voted. Those 
who Ware paired were on the side of 
the trust, so that it may be said that 
the entire republican strength iii the

Pimbe, 8. D., Jan. 11.— Thursday 'i 
development* indicate that there was 
a large-sized conspiracy in the flight of 
State Treasurer Taylor, and the loss to 
the state $350,000. Facts have come into 
the possession of the state officials 
which make it reasonably certain that 
Taylor and certain confederates de- 
liberately went to work, after it be- 
eome evident that he could not squaie 
his accounts, to hold the State up aud 
tompel a compromise by which he 
should be saved from punishment and 
his bondsmen protected from loss. 

The state was in a hard place finan- 
cially. If not a cent had been lost 
there would have been a deficit on the 
first day of next July of fully $100,000, 
due to overappropriations by the last 
legislature, and to the slow payment 
of taxes on account of the short crop 
of the year. The limit of taxation has 
been reached and the limit of in- 
debtedness has been passed for 
some time. How to extricate the 
commonwealth has been the sub- 
ject commanding the most earn- 
est thought of the state officers for 
several months past. The permanent 
appropriations are so high that the leg- 
islature, no matter what economy may 
animate it, could hardly bring the ex- 
penditure within the revenue. There 
were due on the 5th ot January $220,- 
000 worth of funding warrants held by 
eastern parties. There was also due a 
considerable sum on the coupon bonds, 
while the sinking fund was preparing 
to ♦***)- up annual interest to the 
amount of $20,000. The legislature was 
in session, and immediate calls would 
be made on the treasury for at least 

Of course the treasurer knew all this. 
It is believed by the authorities, on 
substantial evidence, that, realizing he 
would be short $100,000 when the trans- 
fer was to be made on the 8th, he con- 
sulted with some of his friends and 
backers, and they decided that the best 
thing to do was to seize all the 
money in the treasury and put It in a 
place of hiding, where it could be got- 
ten at when desired. Then, when the 
default was discovered the state would 
be found bankrupt. It eould not pay 
its obligations, and, having exceeded 
its limit of debt, could not borrow. 
Were it to sue on the bonds of the 
treasurer two years more would elapse 
before any money could be recovered, 
and during that time the credit of 
South Dakota would sink very low. 

The parties to the plan concluded 
that, rather than let this come to pass, 
the state officers would do almost any- 
thing within reason. Then the plan 
was to come forward through an agent 
and propose to pay back to the state 
the $250,000 which the treasurer had 
carried off on condition that the bonds- 
men should be released, and that Tay- 
lor be relieved from further prosecu- 
tion. Had he come to Pierre on Tues- 
day and surrendered himself he would 
have been a common felon, and would 
have gone to the penitentiary for ten 
or fifteen years, and his bondsmen

under the bonds, at this time, would

In Part, Bet otherwise Differ. Widely. 

Washikoton, Jan. 12.— The debate 

in the senate Friday "on the subject of 

the income tax occupied the better 

part of five hours. Most of that time 

was need by Mr. Hill in advocacy of 

the am end men t offered by him the pro- 

cedingday, giving courts of the United 

States jurisdiction to hear and deter- 
mine salts to test the constitutionality 

and validity of the tax. 
He assailed the tax as an unequal, 

ununlform and unjust, and expressed 

his conviction that the senate would 

agree with him that the provision as it 

now stood was unconstitutional, un- 
wieldy and unworkable, and that It 

ought not to be inflicted on the tax 

payers, the executive officers, or con- 
Mr. 8herman (rep, O.) said that in 

the main he agreed with the New York 

senator in" regard to the tax, but he 

held that a refusal of the senate to ap- 
propriate money to carry it out would 

tend to overthrow the principles on 

which the government is established 

and would be particularly wrong in 

regard to a revenue measure, which 

the senate had no power to originate. 

Speeches were also made by Mr. Du- 
bois (rep., Id.), Mr. Quay (rep., Pa.) and 

Mr. Mitchell (rep., Ore.). 
A motion by Mr. Quay to postpone 

the further consideration of the bill 

and amendment till the first Monday 

in February received one vote (his own) 

in its favor and fifty-four against. A 

point of order was made against the 

Hill amendment that it was general 

legislation on a general appropriation 

bill, and was sustained by the pre- 
siding officer, Mr. Faulkner (dem., W. 

An appeal from this ruling was taken 

by Mr. Hill, and at that stage of the 

proceedings the whole matter went 

over til Saturday. 

Two financial bills were introduced, 
one by Mr. Vest (dem., Mo.) to substi- 
tute for the treasury notes and gold 
and silver certificates notes of equal 
amount, payable "in gold and silver 
coins of the United States," and one 
by Mr. MoPherson (dem., N. J.) author- 
izing th issue and sale of bonds. 

Under the rules of the house this 
was private bill day, and three hours 
were spent in an unavailing considera- 
tion, in committee of the whole, of a 
bill that engaged the attention of the 
body on the day last devoted to the 
private calendar in July, 1894. It was 
for the payment of $13,000 for stores 
and supplies from a loyal Tennesseean 
in the war, as adjudged by the court 
of claims. 

The bill elicited discussion of the 
general policy of congress with respet 
of these bills, and Mr. lioatner (dam., 
La.) said that if it was the intention to 
pay none of them the sooner that fact 
was known the better it would be for 
the peace of mind of the representa- 
tives from the southern states. 

Mr. Cockrell (dem., Tex.) said lie had 
no request to make of the conquerors 
on account of the claims advanced by 
men who established their loyalty to 
the government thirty years after the 
war ended. 

Mr. Dookery (dem.. Mo.) said that, 
for himself, he would repeal the Bow- 
man and Tucker bill, abolish the com- 
mittee on war claims and declare the men — who are the real sufferers now — 
war closed. No action was had upon the are not responsible for this condition 


Colcmbis, 0.,.Tan. 14.— Sunday nigh! 
Gov. McKinley received a telegram 
from Chairman Coultrap, of the relief 
committee at Nelsonville, urging that 
supplies be sent to Shawnee and Cilou- 
ster at once, as well as to Nelsonville. 
Immediately the governor sent Mayor 
Blee, of Cleveland, the following tele- 

'•There is much suffering for pro- 
visions and clothing among the miners 
of the Hocking and Sunday Creek val- 
leys, of this state. It is of such a char- 
acter that I feel constrained to call 
upon the generous people of Ohio to 
render assistance. The car load of sup- 
plies sent last week has been already 
exhausted. Columbus sent a car load 
Sunday night; <nd Cincinnati will com- 
mence shipping her contributions Mon- 
day. Contributions can be either mon- 
ey, provisions or clothing. Can Cleve- 
land be ready to ship supplies by Wed- 
nesday, or otherwise contribute as it 
may deem best by that time? I will 
later indicate to what points the ship- 
ments should be made," 

The carload of provisions that-was 
to leave Sunday morning was not sent, 
but will go to Glouster Monday morn- 

A gentleman who resides in the 
Hocking valley and who is pretty 
familiar with the conditions of the 
miners, was here Sunday. He says the 
miners have been in destitute cir- 
cumstances for some time, and that 
the matter was reported to the. officials 
of the United mineworkers, \^Jt- they 
practically ignored the matter, prob- 
ably because they did not comprehend 
the real truth. 

When they failed to take action, the 
miners themselves appointed commit- 
lees, w h o, fo r the hist two months, 
have been going quietly about the 
country soliciting aid, which they 
claimed was for Hocking Valley rail- 
road men who lost their situations by 
reason of the strike on that road last 

This, the gentleman claimed, was 
done in order that the public mightnot 
know that the miners were in impov- 
erished circumstances. The gentle- 
man said he had heard it charged that 
the United Mli.*workers' officials had 
advised that the matter be kept from 
the pubic, but he doubted the truth of 

He further says that the destitution 
in the Hocking Valley far overshadows 
that in the Nelsonville valley. He 
thinks the destitute there will have to 
be cared for until spring at least 

The well-to-do citizens in the impov- 
erished district charge that much of 
the suffering there can be traced to 
the drinking habit. They say many of 
the miners in prosperous times seem 
to have no other desire than to enrich 
the saloon keepers, and make no at- 
tempt to prepare for adversity. 

The better class of miners admit tbrt 
this is true in a great many instances,

Kansas Citt, Mo., Jan. 12.— The cat-

here. Col. Albert Dean, agent of the 
bureau of animal industry for the 
southwest, has just completed his re-

Female Aeronaut Falls Into a River. 
Jacksonville, Fla.. Jan. 14.— Virgie

McCardell essayed her parachute leap. 
The water was bitterly cold, and the 
aerona-nt was badly exhausted when 
rescued by a boat. 

Washington, Jan. 14.— Senator Jones 
will probably introduce Monday the 
currency bill upon which he has been 
at work, and which is regarded as the 
last resort. The Arkansas, senator has 
been very successful in his previous ef- 
forts at formulating compromises and 
harmonizing discordant elements, but 
he has a very difficult task before him 
now. He must not only formulate a 
bill to satisfy the majority, but he 
must fashion it so as to propitiate prac- 
t'cally every meaaber of the senate. 

The chief features of the proposed 
bill is as follows: 

The secretary of the treasury will be 
authorized to ferae cTiOO.OOO.OOOof coup- 
on or reg-istered bonds, interest and 
principle payable in gold at not exceed- 
ing 3 per cent., the bonds to run thirty 
years, but redeemable at the option ol 
the government after twenty years. 
The proceeds of these bonds are to be 
used for the current expenses of the 
treasury, and the redemption of the 
greenbacks and the treasury notes is- 
sued under the Sherman act. 

The bonds will be of the denomina- 
tions of 820, $.J0. $100. S.100. SI. 000, S"i.00C 
and $10,000, all exempt from taxation, 
etc. National banks will be permitted 
to issue notes to the par value of the 
bonds they have deposited to secure 
their circulation and an inducement 
will be offered the banks to increase 
their circulation by reducing the tax 
on circulation from 1 per cent to % ol 
1 per cent. 

An effort wijl also .be made to pre- 
vent the reductw... „. „>Vy taxation by 
making it illegal for any bank to retire 
its circulation without the consent in 
writing of the secretary of the treas- 
ury and the act will be repealed which 
prohibits banks from increasing their 
circulation for a period of six montbi 
after the withdrawal of circulation. 

An increase in the use silver is ere 
atcd in two sections, which will pro- 
vide that all notes under the denomi- 
nation of 520 shall be silver certificates. 
These sections will provide that no Na- 
tional bank note shall be issued of a 
denomination less than $?n. and all 
notes of national banks now outstand- 
ing, of a denomination less than $20. 
shall, as rapidly as possible, be taken 
up. redeemed and canceled, and notes 
of $20 or higher denominations issued 
in their stead. 

It is the intention under this pro- 
pose 1 act that neither the treasury nor 
the national banks shall issue or keep 
in circulation any notes other than 
silver certificates of a less denomina- 
tion than $20. Th-! secretary of the 
treasury is authorized, at the request 
of a holder Of treasury notes or green- 
backs, to issue in lieu thereof silver 
certificates of a less denomination 
than $20. 

Another section of the bill authorizes 
and directs the secretary of the treas- 
ury, out of the proceeds of the sale of 
bonds and from any surplus revenues, 
to redeem and cancel, and not reissue, 
the greenbacks and treasury notes as 
fast as the aggregate amount of green- 
backs, treasury notes and silver cer-

Relief for Nebraskans. 
Baltimore, Jan. 14.— R. H. Edmonds, 
who was the first to propose that the 
South should contribute a train load or 
more of provisions to suffering Nebras- 
ka, is advised that nearly a full train 
of rice, sugar, molasses and other stiite 
produce has been made up in Louisiana. 
Five or six New Orleans firms have 
each contributed a full car load from 
their wares. The train will leave New 
Orleans this week. A train load of 
grain and meat, contributed by the 
people of Georgia, will leave Atlanta 

Trolley Strike in Brooklyn. 
New York, Jan. 14.— The big trolley 
strike in Brooklyn is on. The dele- 
gates to District Assembly 75, K. of L, 
representing all the local assemblies, 
met Sunday night, when over two 
hours were spent in the discussion of 
the entire situation, and a vote was 
finally taken on the - question of- ar

. Heed tiax~an article 
in the- North American Re v i ew for 
January on "Historic Political Upheav- 
als." He touches lightly tipmi the 
changes which followed the French 
revolution, notes the execution of 
Charles I., tne rise of Cromwell, the 
restoration of the Stuarts and the com- 
plete and permanent revolution of 
IU88, and then romps down to our own 
history. Alluding briefly to the large 
majority cast for Kranklin I'iercc in 
1*-V!. he says it was then supposed that 
the slavery question was settled, which 
everybody knows was a great mistake. 
Then he tells of the big republican vic- 
tory of 1*7-, which was followed by 
the re publi c a n overthrow in 1'Tl. and 
comes down to the elections of |«90, 
1892. 18t)3and U'.il. What happened in 
these years is. of course, fresh in the 
minds of newspaper readers. 

We note in Mr. Seed's article a fail- 
ure to deduce the logical consequences 
of the facts which he adduces, and 
even to apply at the end the principles

tlonal Wrlfure. 

There were some years in the history 
of thp party when it earned the appel- 
lation of bour'lion and the definition o* 
the word, one who never learns »»<l 
never forgets. It grew to he considered, 
the conservative party of the union, 
using the word in its sense of resis- 
tance to every progressive movement. 
It was officered by a lot of eminently 
respectable old fossils who could not 
bear the strain on their nerves and in- 
tellects that a consideration of any new 
and Iiefter way of doing things in- 
volved. They were the statesmen oT 
the rut. They dominated the party be- 
fore and for long after the war. Prin- 
ciples were too rigorous TDid exacting 
for them: they preferred the "'lean and 
slippered pantaloon" of policy. 

Judging from words spoken and 
printed how, there are men who think 
that they- are democrats who assert 
that, the party can have nothing to do 
with any of the new questions that are 
coming on. as they have always come- 
on, and a lways will among progFW*iv«

All the lessons laid down in the first j them. They prate about the tradition-

of power for the party which happen* 

to be the beneficiary of a great politic- 
al upheaval. When the French rero- 

Iution occurred, people thought there 

would be no more kings and nobles. 

They were disappointed. When the 

Bourbons were restored everybody 

thought the old days had returned to 

the fifties. They are evidently ignor- 
ant that the party in this country had 
its birth in the first progressive move- 
ments that sought to break the crust 
of federalism. The founder of the 
party was the radical of his day. He 
stirred the country with new ideas. 
He was born a revolutionist, anil main- 

stay. They. too. were deceived. So it , of our most fixed policies are the chil-

senate passed an act to vote on amend-

favor of the measure. 

read practically as follows: The secre- 
tary of the treasury is authorized and

Hanged by Neighbors. 
Lebanon. Mo., Jan. 14.— Word reach- 
ed here Sunday night of the hanging 
of one Reuben Garner by a mob of in- 
dignant neighbors, near Celt Tost Of- 
fice, Dallas county, Thursday. Garnet 
was accused of robbing the store of 
Hunt & Fowler, at that place, last 
week, and a crowd of ten or twelve in- 
dignant neighbors went to his home." 
took him out, strung him up to a tree 
and left him suspended, his feet a short 
distance from the ground. But a friend 
of Garner's, who was present when the 
party called for him, followed the 
would-be lynchers, and no sooner had 
they left their victim than he was 
there to rescue him, and, speedily cut- 
ting the rope, he succeeded after vig- 
orous efforts in resuscitating Garner, 
who has since left the neighborhood. 

lemoerats wiil not consent to the repeal of the 
'eetton quoted the evident purpose is to have 
in interminable debate. 
norm The p r oendln^si u Uieliuusu TUu r s- 

went all along the line, until the elec 
'.ion of 1894 was reached, when Mr. 
Reed, instead of warning his party that 
this was in no sense a guaranty of its 
continuance in power, contented him- 
self with saying that the elections of 
last November "seem to have settled 
the future of this country for many- 
years." This appeared to afford a good 
opening for Mr. Heed to add that 
"things are not what they seem."' but 
he faHed to utilize it. On the contrary. 
he concluded his article with a few ob- 
servations which imply -that the re- 
publicans are going to rule the country 
to the end of time. 

Mr. Reed's explanation of the disas- 
ters of 1SU0 and 1S9J is peculiar. When 
he says that the passage of the tariff 
bill should have taken place by" the" 
middle of July we understand him well 
enough. Xo donbt the republicans suf- 
fered in 181K) from delay in passing the 
tariff bill, just as the democrats did in 
1894. But when he brings in the Uar- 
ing failure to supplement it he re- 
verses history, for that did not occur 
till after the election. Nor is it true 
that the "influences which produced 
the Baring failure." as Mr. Reed ex- 
presses it, were discernible before the 

dren of his revolutionary brain. The 
divorce- of church. and state, the blow 
at oligarchy which his abolition of the 
law of primogeniture struck are some 
of these. It was not untii in recent 
years the party shook off the lethargy 
of the conservatives and became ptv^ 
gressive that it has come up out of it 
deserved subordination. It was when 
the mossbacks were sent to the rear 
that the party inspired the confidence 
lhat gained its recruits and gave it 

victory. .. 

There is no room in any nation for 
two conservative parties to co-exist. 
The republican party lost years ago its 
initiative of progress, and has been 
contented to merely administer the gov- 
ernment, meeting the exigencies as 
they arose as "best it could by tempor- 
I ary expedients. It had a spasm of 
j progress along its chosen line of policy 
: in 1890, but the evidence is plentiful 
that it regrets the advance it made, 
| and will retreat from it when again in 
j power. It will accept the tariff act of 
this congress: it will abjure force bills, 
and it will dodge and hedge on the cur- 
This leaves the democracy only the

had been influencing business unfavor- I view to examine and testand approve 
bly for two years, Mr. Reed says that [ if they chord with the basic principles 
in 1 the republicans had to meet ! f the party. To free trade, to the na- 

"the unrest that comes slowly with too 
uniform prosperity. - ' Thus the repul>- 

tionalization of railways, to the single- 
tax, the sole question is: Are they 

licans were slaughtered "a-eomHi' and -democratic? Adapting Paul's counsel, 
a-gwine." In 1890 the Baring failure i it would "prove all things; hold fast 
made times hard before it occurred, i those which are democratic." Do they 
and in 1892 the too uniform prosperity abridge individual freedom? Reject 
that the people had enjoyed after the them. Do they \ake power from the 
failure made them smite the republic- state and transmute it into liberty for 
an party hip and thigh. [ the citizen? Do they take from priv- 

This reasoning will strengthen the j jlege the advantage it wrongfully

of all a humorist. This is further rein- | equalit y? Then tranUly accept th v ^

It is unfortunate that Mr. Reed was 
not able to finish hi* article in the 
philosophical strain in which he began 
it: but the reason is clear enough. 
There was a war between Mr. Reed, 
the philosopher, and Mr. Reed, the 
candidate »for the presidency-.- The 
philosopher said enough in the begin- 
ning to warn the republicans that 
their landslide of imt may not avail 
them in l»9t>, 

impelled to tell them at the close that 
they will continue to rule the ceuntry. 
"It may be for years, and it may be for- 
ever." For all that the application of 
Mr. Reed's facts shows that the result 
of the election of 181)6 is as doubtful as 
future events generally are: and it is 
equally doubtful whether a republican 
victory in that year would inure to

The re lief of the government is the 

relief of the people, and of_aH of them; 
and the republicans in congress should 
not hesitate to unite with the demo- 
crats to secure a wise, sagacious settle 
ment of the financial question. Their 
making it a partisan matter and re- 
cusing to atdrtnTtnyschemoof currency -

Gov. McKinley appears to^e the- 

same kind of a financier in state affairs 
that he was in his own business affairs. 


Beneficent Eflerta ot the Democratic Tar- 
iff on Wool. 
With the beginning of the new year 
the democratic tariff on wool and on 
clothiug takes effect. The provisions 
of this democratic measure takeoff the 
duty on Wool and reduce the duty on 
manufactured clothing. 

The effect of 
this measure will be to reduce the cost 
of the clothing of the people of the 
United States the amount of two hnn- 
ctrert~mTtlirm dollars a year. This is 

ley tariff and of the reduction made by 
the democratic tariff. 

It will be easy for anyone who uses 
wool in any way as an article either of 
manufacture or personal apparel to 

the difference in the market price, not 
only in the trade, but in the retail stores. 
Blankets, clothing o* all kinds and 

in control wore there merely for their 
>wn pecuniary benefit, and condemned 
the appropriation of money by the 
state for use by the state society.

This reduction has been accomplished 
without the closing of any mills or the 
reduction of any workingmau's wages. 
The American manufacturer and the 
American working man is capable of 
competing with all the other manufac- 
turers, and workingmen of the world if 
he has his raw materials and his sources 
of production free from taxation. The 
McKinley tariff put the burden of its 
high taxation on the raw wool. That 
Increased the price to the manufactur- 
er and made it necessary for him to re- 
coup himself by a tariff on his product.

profits piled up so high that the Ameri-

cit. As a candidate for the reifublieau 
nomination for president McKinley 

wltl enter the presidential year with a 
bankruptcy record e#- his Own and as

rupt. —Chicago Heruld. 

Some of our republican friends 

seem to be greatly concerned lest the 
democrats should have "no party be- 
hind them next year." Why should 
that be a cause for republican deploy- 
ings? Are they really anxious about 
it or are they shedding crocodile tears 
and trying to scare the "unterrified?" 
First they threaten, then they bewail 
and all the time they falsify. But 
their little scheme will not work any 
way. The democratic party is inde- 
structible. — Salt Lake Herald. 

The contemplation of-ear-early 

session of the Fifty-fourth congress is 
discomforting to the republicans. They 
would infinitely prefer, from the mere- 
ly partisan'standpoint, that the finan- 
cial question should l>e settled at this 
session, for the reason that, if the re- 
sponsibility fur legislation should be 
suddenly thrust upon- them, the 
divisions in their ranks would be found 
as numerous and almost as radical hit 

pete in finished cloth in the markets of 

-the- wo r ld. — 

Now that wool is free the American 
manufacturer and the American work- 
ingnian are unfettered. Not only do 
the consumers get every article of 
woolen goods they use at a low rate, 
but th« manufacturers are enabled to 
compete in the markets of the world 
and thus give employment toaddition- 
al workingmen and to return to him- 
self additional profits.— Albany Argus.

His brother, Isaac, w as the first 
Governor of Kentucky, and was 
elected twice subsequently to the 
same position. It is not in the way 
of information to say that Boone 
county as well as the rest of Ken- 
tucky, was settled by Virginians 
and "Ten ncsseeans— mostly Virgin- 
ians, the Tenncsseeans in fact com- 
ing from Virginia. But it is infor- 
mation to the majority of your 
readers that they were mostly of 
Welsh descent. "Somewhere near 
1713 a couple of sloops landed off 
the coast of Virginia from Wales. 
and being emigrants of sturdy mold 
and enterprising, they increased and 
multipl ie d after tlw-seriptural in

ever since been able to be up and 
around when called npon. The

While visiting near Bristol, a near 
rclatiyc,who is quite old.told me that 
a brother, Kev. Samuel Lynn settled 
near Richwood in 1837. He was a 
Presbyterian preacher and school 
teacher. 'Squire Norman, of this 
place, went to school to him, and 
says he believes he still hears the 
marks of a flagellation at his hands 
for some violation of the rules. He 
also showed me a piece of bark cut 
from a beech tree, years ago, upon 
which was inscrilied, evidently by 
the hand of Daniel himself, the fol- 
lowing : 'Tilled a bar 1701— D. 
Boon." Whatever prowess as a 
hunter and Indian fighter, he would 
never have taken a prize in a spell- 
ing match. I make this criticism, 
because at this date it is perfectly 
safe to do so. 

Among the old MSS. mentined, 
I saw an autograph letter from Gen.

he felicitously congratulates him-

dians at the battle of King's Moun-

taken over three hundred scalps,

lowed by this biographical .sketch : 

-James Arthur Cowcn, the newly 
elected Justice of the Peace in the 
Hoggins District, who entered upon 
the discharge of his duties last Mon- 
day, was born at Burlington, the 
county seat of the good county of 
Boone, June 2'ith, 184(i, and is" the 
son of Samuel Cowen, who was born 
in Maryland, Sept, 17th 1807. He 
emigrated to Kentucky in 1834,and 
settled at Burlington that year. He 
was united in marriage to Miss 
Maria Huffman, of Ohio, and she 
died when James Cowen, the sul>- 
ject of this sketch was a very small 
child. The elder Cowen married 
again. He conducted a merchand- 
ise establishment and was also jail- 
er of Boone County, and keeper of 
the County poor farm from lj&B(i to 
1800, when he gave up the position. 
He has been an invalid for 28^ ears. 
James Cowen came toGaJJatin Coun- 
ty, March 13th, 1803, and was unit- 
ed in marriage to Miss Lizzie Berk- 
shire, daughter of Milton Berkshire, 
deceased, Dec. 20th, 18(>(i. Their 
union was blessed with one child, 
Anna, who is now the wife of Chas. 
Carver, of near Drury Chapel. Mr. 
Cowen, like his father before him. 
has always lx>en a Democrat, and a 
member of the Presbyterian Church. 
He has always followed fanning, 
and is a first ehiss representative of 
this noble calling. The office to 
which M_r. Cowen has been elected 
is the first one, as he never sought 
political honors. He will make a 
first class 

Court, and in every relation to 
Office will be active in the discharge 
of his duties. Mr. Cowen has many 
friends, and deservedly so. He is a

Cincinnati Tobacco Market. 


The second week in the New 
year brought the largest offerings in 
one that our market ever had, name- 
ly l,0f>5 hogsheads on Wednesday, 
and over 800 on Thursday, being 
cut short on the latter day on ac- 
count of the darkness which set in 
about three o'clock in the afternoon, 
making it impracticable to go on 
with the sales. We are glad to say 
that in the face of these large offer- 
ings no weakening"~in~priccir^was 
perceptible, and the results of the 
week may be considered favorable. 
The stocks of old arc of course re- 
diicing. The largeFpart of fTuTbT- 
fcrings are medium goods, and sell- 
ing Ix-low 8 cents, while the com- 
paratively few hogsheads of fine to- 
bacco range from 15 to 20 cents. An 
interesting comparison in this con- 
nection is that on a given— ditv~for 
the two years 1804 and 1805, "Take 
Wednesday of the present week. 
In 1804 there were 100 hogsheads 
sold lielow 8 cents and 545 hogs- 
hcads abo ve, a ratio of ab out "o ne to 
four in favor of the higher price, 
while in the present year 514 hogs- 
heads sold below 8 cents and 137 
hogsheads al>ovc, or say one to five 
in favor of the lower p'riee. 

In new tobacco the difference is

moral, upright and honorable, "and 
there isn t a lietter fellow socially in 
the whole county. He is one of the 
men that if he is a friend it is one 
indeed and in truth and practice. 
The tax payers of this county are 
to be congratulated in the selection 
of Mr, Cowen as a member of the 
fiscal court for he will steadfastly 
represent their ltest interests, with- 
out fear or favor, according to his 
best judgment.

The general bidding during the 
week was quite animated, with all 
the buyers present, and sellers were 
usually satisfied to accept the bids, 
though there was some disappoint-

stock, the principal reason for this, 
however, lies in the fact that they 
haven't the tobacco which the trade 
most wants, and which commands

(From the Record, Philadelphia. Pa.) 
Last J uly the Episcopal hospital admitted 
a woman whoso palo aud emaciated face and 
racking cough proclaimed her the vic- 
tim of consumption. She gave her name as 
Mrs. Sallie G. Dowen, wife of Wm. G. 
Bowea, residence, 184H Meighan Bt., Phila- 
delphia. The case was diagnosed aud she 
was told plainly that sho was in an ad- 
vancctrstage-ef consumption. Tbeeiramiii 
iug physician even showed her the sunken 
place in her breast where the cavity in her 
lung was supposed to exist. She went home 
to her family a broken, disheartened woman 
with death staring her in the face. That was 
the beginning of the story, the end was told 
by Mrs. Bo wen, who do longer expects to 
die, to a re|K)rtcr who visited hor home. 

"The first symptoms of consumption came 
intho form of terrible sweats, both night 
and day. From April until September I 
was constantly cold and kept wrapped up 
In blankets through the hottest weather. A 
terrible cough took possession of me, my 
breast was sore to the slightest touch, and 
my limbs were like cold clay. The hardest 
rubbing with the coarsest towel would not 
ireatethe slightest flush, and the least ex- 
jrtion would so exhaust mo that I could 
barely gasp for water. 

"I went to the hospital in July and they 
iiagnosed my case as above stated. It 
was when tho clouds wore tho darkest 
that the first glint of sunshine came. Mr. 
Shclnierdine a friend, who lives around at 
ISM Clementine St., said to me one day: 
Mrs. Bowcn, did you ever try Dr. Williams' 
Pink Pills for Palo People ( I had never 
heard of tho medicine, but in my condition 
jould not turn a deaf ear to, anything that, 
'iffered relief. It was after considerable 
thought and investigation that I concluded 
fo djsppnUiuio all tho medicino I was taking, 
including cod liver oil, and depend entirety' 
upon Pink Pills. I began to take the Pills, 
- at fi r st - with hut little encouragfin'ent. The 
first sign of improvement was a warmth 
and a tingling sensation in my limbs. 
Finally tho cough disappeared, my chest 
In st , its soreness ond-I- -bugaa -to gain flesh 
until I was lil'tecn pounds heavier. All this 
I owe to Dr.- Williams' Pink Pills, and 1 

cannot praise them too highly." 

-Mrs. Bowen is a kindly" faced lady oi 
middle age, a church member well-known 

and highly esteemed; She looks -to-day 

well and strong, and it seems almost im- 

boats of all sizes, and manned by peo- 
ple of all colors, but chiefly Tamils 
and Cingalese. 

There are two thing-s I want most to 
see on this island— a heathen temple 
and its devotees in idolatrous worship, 
and nn andienceof Cingalese addressed 
by a Christian missionary. The en- 
tomologist may have his capture of 
brilliant inserts; and the sportsman in 
his tent adorned with antler of red 
deer and tooth of wild boar; and the 
painter his portfolio of gorge 3,000 feet 
down, and of days dying on evening 
pillows of purple cloud etched with 
fire; and the botanist his camp full of 
orchids, and crowfoots, and gentians, 
and valerian, and lotus. I want most 
to find out the moral and religious 
triumphs, how many wounds have been 
healed; how many sorrows comforted; 
liow many entombed nations resur- 
rected. Sir William Baker, the famous 
explorer and geographer, did well for 
Ceylon after his eight years' residence 
in this island, and Prof. Ernst Iieckel, 
th^j^fe^scWrornJejrm.jljd_\vell when 
he swept these waters and rummaged 
these hills, and took home for future 
inspection the insects of this tropical 
air. And forever honored be such work; 
but let all that is sweet in rythm, and 
graphic on canvass, and imposing in 
monument, and immortal in memorv 
be brought to tell the deeds of 
who were heroes and heroines for 
Christ's sake. 

Many scholars have supposed that 
this island of Ceylon was the original 
Garden of Eden, where the snake first 
appeared on reptilian mission. There 
are reasons for belief that this was the 
site where the first homestead was 
opened aud destroyed. It is so near 
the equator that there are not more 
than 12 degrees of Fahrenheit differ- 
ence all the year round. Perpetual fo- 
liage, perpetual fruit and all styles of 

What glory enthroned amid its foliage 
What a majestic doxology spreads out 
in its branches! What a voice when 
the tempests pa*s through -it^ H o w it 
looks down upon the cradle and the 
grave of centuries! As the fruit of 
one tree unlawfully eaten struck the 
race with woe, and the up-lifting of 
another tree brings peace to the soul, 
let the woodman spare the tree, and 
all nations honor it, if, through higher 
teaching, we do not, like the Ceylon- 
ese, worship it! How consolatory that 
when we no more walk under the tree 
branches on earth, we may see the 
"Tree of life which bears twelve man- 
ner of fruit, and yields her fruits every 
month, and the leaves of the tree are 
for the healing of the nations!" 

Two processions I saw in Ceylon 
within one hour, the first led by a Hin- 
doo priest, a huge pot of flowers on 
his head, his face disfigured with holy 
lacerations, and his unwashed follow- 
ers beating as many discords from 
what are supposed to bo musical in- 
struments, as at one time can be in- 
duced to enter the human ear. The 
procession halted at the door of the 
huts. The occupants came out and 
made obeisance and presented, small 
contributions. In return therefor the 
priest sprinkled ashes upon the chil- 
dren who came forward, this evidently 
a form of benediction. Then the pro- 
cession, led on by the priest, started 
again; more noise, more action, more 
ashes, more genufiction. However keen 
one's sense of the ludierous, he could 
find nothing to excite even a smile in 
the movements of such a procession, 
meaningless, oppressive, squalid, filthy, 
Keturning to our carriage, we rode 
on for a few moments, and we came 
upon another procession, a kindly lady- 
leading groups of native children, all 
clean, bright, haypy, laughing. They 
were a Christian school out for exer- 
cise. There .seemed as much intelli- 
gence, refinement and happiness in 
that regiment of young Cingalese as 
you would find in the ranks of any- 
young ladies' seminary being chaper- 
oned on their afternoon walk through 
Central park. New York, or Hyde 
park, London. The Hindoo procession 
illustrated on a small scale something

It is common in Continental Europe 
to speak of December as "London's 
Iilaok Month," or "The Dark Month of

count, December, the month of merry 
Christmas, is the month in which the 
world's metropolis receives the fewest

institution and would not purposely 
malign the climate, is authority for the

Nearby is a lluddhist temple, on the 
altar of which, before the image of 
liuddha, are offerings of flowers. As 
night was coming on we came up to a 
Hindoo temple. First we were prohib- 
ited from going further than the out- 
side steps, but we gradually advanced 
until we could see all that was going 
on inside. The wor-hipers were mak- 
ing obeisance. The tom-toms weir 
wihlly beaten and shrill pipes wen- 
blown, and several other instrument- 
were in full lm"ng and blare, and 
there was an indescribable hubbub and 
the most laborious style of worship I 
had ever seen or heard. The dim lighU 
and. the jargon aud the glooms and the 
fitting figures mingled for eye -ancVear 
it horror which it is dinYult to shake 
off. All this was only suggestive of 
what would there transpire after the 
toilers of the day had ceased work and 
had time to appear at the temple. ThaF 
such things should be supposed to 
please the Lord or have any power to 
console or help the worshipers Is only 
another mystery in this world of .rays, 
teries. Hut we came away saddened 
with the spectacle, a sadness which did 
iiot leave us until we arrived at a place 
where a Christian missionary wa^

to witness such a scene, and hereciit

reverence. A religion of relief and 
joy was being commended, and the 
dusky faces were illumined with tho 
sentiments of pacification and re-in- 
forcement It was the rose of Sharon 
after walking among nettles. It was 
the morning light after a thick dark-

on cartrf is the human race, and speci- 
mens of all branches of it confront you 
in Ceylon. The island of the present 
is a quiet and inconspicuous affair com- 
pared with what it once was. The 
dead cities of Ceylon were larger and 
more imposing than are the living cit- 
ies. On this island are dead New 
Vorks. dead Pekins and dead Edin- 
burghs, and dead Londons. Ever and

municipality flies open, and there are 
other buried cities that will yet

The American missionaries in Ceylon 
have given special attention to medical 
instruction, and are doing wonders in 
driving back the horrors of heathen 
surgery. Cases of suffering were form- 
erly given over to the devil-worshipers, 
and such tortures inflicted as mav not 
be described. The patient was tram- 
pled by the feet of the medical attend- 
ants. It is only of God's mercy that 
there is a living mother in Ceylon. Oh, 
how much Ceylon needs doctors, ami 
the medical classes of native students 
under the can; of those who follow the 
example of the late Samuel Fish Oreen 
are providing them, so that all the 
alleviations, and kindly ministries, and 
scientific acumen that can be found in 
American and English hospitals will 
soon bless all Ceylon. In that island 
are 32 American schools, 210 Church of 
England schools, 234 Wesleyan schools, 
234 Roman Catholic schools. Ah! the 
schools decide most every thing. 

How suggestive the incident that 
came to me in Ceylon. In a school un- 
der the care of the Episeopal church 
two boys were converted to Christ and 
were to be baptized. An intelligent 
Buddhist boy said in the school: "Let 
all the boys on Buddha's side come to 
this part of the room." All the boys 
except two went on Buddha's side, and 
when the two boys who were to be 
baptized were scoffed Bt and derided, 
one of them yielded and retired 
to Buddha's side. But afterward 
tlie boy was sorry that lie had yield- 
en to the persecution, and when the 
day_of baptism came stood up beside 
the boy who remained firm. Home one 
said to the boy who had vacillated in 
his choice between UtTddlia and Christ:

following is an exrtact from an article 
on the subject. 

In current tradition regarding the 
growth of the human hair and in many 
popular books, one frequently comes 
across the' old error* of Hkeiiing"t*h'e* 
hair to plants. According to this error 
one naturally would expect the same 
result to the hair from clipping it or 
J j ^jpIyiiiS ' -iBvl g o r ator b t hat would be 
obtained from clipping or fertilizing a 
hed-re. Hut close observation and re- 
flection show these representations to 
be worthless: ' The" hair is not like 
plants. It is nothing more, than un- 
sensitive — threads uf sk i n, — ot — tnttr

in their proper place under the same 
conditions as the nails grow on the

overcome of temptation, but I repent

baptized, and from that time the An- 
glican mission moved on more and 
more vigorously. I will not say which 
of all the denominations of Christians 
is doing the most for the evangeliza-

Among the first places I visited was 
a Buddhist college, about one hundred 
men studying to become priests gath- 
ered around the teachers: Stepping 
into the building where the high priest 
was instructing the class, we were 
apologetic and told him we were Amer- 
icans, and would like to see his mode 
of teaching if he had no objections; 
whereupon he began, doubled up as he 
was on a lounge, with his right hand 
playing with his foot, In his left hand 
he held « packet of DiUBboi) leaves on.

The hair papilla- do not lie on the 
surface of the skin, but are sunk more 
or less deeply into it, more deeply as 
the hair is longer, so that long hairs 
adhere in a deep sac. The number of 
these hair papillm of course varies con- 
siderably with different people, but for 
each individual is constant and un- 
changeable, and can not be increased 
anymore than can the number of one's 
finger nails. The number of hairs de- 
pends on the papillro. Each hair has its 
own papilla, consequently if there are 
no papilla* there can be no hair. More- 
over the number of these papilla- is 
constant, except as it is diminished by 
disease, so that the idea of increasing 
their number by clipping the hair must 
be abandoned, The growth of the hair 
depends, rather, on the well being ol 
all the papilhe. But they are constit- 
uent parts of the skin and share its fate 
alike in both good and evil days."—

A Swiss statistician has taken tht 
trouble to count the number of s.eps 
he took in walking during the whole 
year. The number he finds to have 
been 0,700,000, or an -average of 26.74C 
steps a day. Going still farther intc 
details, he declares that over 600,000 oi 
these steps were taken in going up and 
down stairs. On an average he esti- 
mates that he walked nearly 10 miles a 
day in order to bring about these re-

Hawksvii.i.f., Jan. SI.— The great 
Cincinnati and New Orleans steamer 
State of Missouri went to the bottom 
of the Ohio at Wolf Creek, P. O., thirty-

Saturday night and forty people met 
death. The post office at Wolf Creek,

securely tied to the guards, were found. 

At Cloversport, Ky., C. C. White- 
head, an old fiat-boat pilot, who was 
on the ill-fated Missouri, was seen by 
a reporter. Capt. Whitehead was in-

undoubtedly was the hero of the dis- 
aster, and the following interview 
with him will prove interesting to 
thousands of people who had friends 
or relatives aboard. Capt. "Whitehead 

"We were coming down the river and 
having a good time. I was in the pilot 
house and was just starting down to 
snpper. When 1 reached the cabin 
deck I noticed- the boat -head wig too 
much toward the shore, as I thought, 
and I stopped to see what the matter 
Ml . . At this time a Mr. (Jarland, of 
Cavc-in-Uooks, 111., came up, and I told 
him the situation. He said: - I can't 
swim, how can I be saved?' I told him 
to catch a plank and jump when the 
boat struck. 

— *' A t. thaUjnumcnt the pilot seemed 
to realize where he was and the steam- 
er's bow began to turn about. He was 
about half a second too late. The bow 
mis.-ed the rock, but the stern struck 
and was completely torn off from the 
other part. Garland jumped and was 
the first man off the boat. 

"When the shock came a brave Ne- 
gro jumped ashore with a line and tied 
it, but the headway of the boat parted 
the line and she swung into the river. 
I saw the boat was sinking, and as 
there seemed to be no one in command, 
I helped lower the boats and helped 
all the lady passengers in. and all of 
them were saved. The steamer was 
then rocking and I went to the upper 
deck, expecting to stay there until help 

"In less than four minutes the boat 
had gone down over her upper decks, 
and when I was knee deep in water I 
jumped and began swimming in the 

"A Negro who was frightened and 
fighting for life caught me by the hair 
for support, and I had a terrible strug-

him away and saw him go down to rise 
no more. 

"Just as 1 reached shore T heard a 
.loud report sqw, a.grcat fktme. and .the, 
cabin of the boat rose high in the air 
ami then I knew that the boiler had 
burst. When I looked around I saw a 
yawl with people who had boarded it

An Amalgamated Strike.

Representative Strau Explain* Tl« mil 
to Put Them Under Governmental Con. 

Washington, Jan. 19.— A hearing 
was given by the house commerce 
committee Friday to Representative 
Isadore Straus, ofNew York, on a bill 
Introduced by him July last to regu- 
late railway companies engaged in in- 
terstate commerce. 

The bill, which is very voluminous, 
provides uniform and simple methods 
of bookkeeping for railway corpora- j 
tions; prescribes periodical examina- | 
lions of their books as in the rase of 
national banks; prohibits directors of 
railway companies from selling stocks 
or bonds of these corporations ■•short;" 
requires that only bona fide holders of 
the stock shall vote at elections, that 
no officer that has been connected 
with the oompany that has been 
wrecked can be appointed its receiver, 
and limits the control of receivers. 

Mr. Straus began by stating that the 
aggregate value of railway properties 
in the United States is more than ten 
thousand millions of dollars, but that 
railways representing twenty-five per 
cent of this valuation are now in the 
hands of receivers. This is suggestive 
of something more than hard times. 

He contended that the restoration of 
confidence in our railway securities 
and railway management is second in 
importance only to the question of 
sound currency. "Abroad," he con- 
tinued, "the scandals of our railway 
management have inflicted upon Amer- 
ican credit the most dangerous blow it 
has received in this generation." 

"The recent passage by the house of 
a bill permitting the pooling of earn- 
ings by railways under the supervision 
of the interstate commerce commis- 
sion," said' Mr. Strauss, in conclusion, 
"should lay at rest any claim that the 
powers proposed to be exercised under 
theprovisions of this bill are not prop- 
erly within the province of the nation- 
al government."

A Man Shoots and Kills Ills Wife and llci

Faibmont, Minn., Jan. 19. — Sam Ho-

of here, went to the house of T. If. 
Whitney, his father-in-law. and shot 
and killed both of the old people and 
his wife, who had left him and gone

daughter of Whitney escaped from 
the house and gave the alarm. Aft- 
er committing the murder, Hotel- 
ing fled to his own house, near by, 
and barricading the doors and win- 
dows, prepared for a siege. He kept 
the sheriff's posse at bay until Friday 
morning, when a number of militia 
rifles were taken from this place and 
the house riddled with bullets. Ilotel- 
ing was found dead, having shot him- 
self in the head, the bnll entering the

Prlxe International Drills. 
MEMPHis.Tcnh., Jan. 19.— Commemr- 

London, Jan. 21.— The Chifu corres- 
pondent of the Central News says that 
the Japanese began bombarding Teng- 
Chow Saturday. The British warship 
Daphne and the American cruiser 
i Yorktown left Chlfu to observe the 
I bombardment, which is still in pro- 

Except for a few shots fired at < hi- 
uese warships in the harbor of Wei- 
Hai-Wei early in the war. this is the 
{ first time in this war that an attack 
I has been made upon any place on the 
I mainland of China. Teng-Chow is a 
I flourishing city of -e50,-000 inhabitant* 
| on the extreme northern part of the 
promontory that juts out into 
the Yellow sea and forms the 
eastern portion of the pro tine* 
of Shantung. It is on the same 
coast with Chifu and Wei-ffai-Wei. ant 
is west of them. The foreign warship.' 
that have gone from Chifu to witnesi 
the bombardment had to travel only 
about fifty miles to reach the city that 
the Japanese warships are now assail- 
ing. The city is situated on the Strait 
of Pe-Chi-Li. at the point where it be- 
gins to merge into the Oulf of Pe-Chi-Li. 
It is a little west of south of Port Ar- 
thur, and only about seventy miles froir 
it, so that the Japanese vessels issuing 
from the captured fort to the nortl 
had only a few hours' sailing before 
they reached the point of attack. 

There was a time when Teng-Chow 
was a great commercial rival of Chifu. 
That was when the waters in the road- 
stead (for it can hardly be called a 
harbor) were very deep. The junks 
were able to push right up to the shore 
and unload their merchandise in the 
city. But the Hoang river has played 
the mischief with Teng-Chow. Since 
it left its old bed and made a new 
course for itself far to the north, it hat 
been sifting its great loads of sediment 
far and wide over tho bottom of the 
Gulf of Pe-Chi-Li. and enormous quan- 
tities of it have been caught and de- 
posited on that part of the coast that 
projects farthest to the north. 

It is right here that Teng-Chow is 
situated; and so the sea bed in front 
of it has long been filling up with the 
yellow earth that "China's sorrow" has 
brought down to the sea. To-day 
small vessels are not able to approach 
the shore, and have to anchor far from 
TE About three or four ffitTeT 
from the shore, however, is a 
narrow channel between the city 
and the little island to "the north 
known as the Strait of Miao-Tao. Tht 
rapid' currents here have kept tht 
channel comparatively clear of the 
Hoang deposits and the water is about 
sixty feet deep. 

This is the only possible position 
from which large warships might bom- 
bard the city, and it is from this point 
of vantage that the Japanese naval 
vessels are pouring their shot and shell 
into the big town. 

— Teng-Chow is not one-of the ports mainly to 
,qpened-tq she . vprld , hi* tre.a ty, . but, 
through arrangements made by vari- 
ous powers, foreign trade has been 
permitted to some extent. This trade, 
however, has been growing less from 
year to year. This is the first time in 
many years that the Japanese have 
seriously attacked any point on the 
coast. Generations ago the people here 
were in mortal terror of the Japanese 

ing May 13, and lasting~six days, i.n 
international drill and encampment 
will be held in this city. The commit- 
tee having the matter hrhand -hav?r 
completed all necessary arrangements. 
Twenty thousand dollars in prizes 
will be offered, divided into seven 
classes, including the army regulation 
tactics, Upton's, Casey's, and Hardee; 
also for artillery and cavalry and 
brass bands, Companies. from all parts 
of the United States are expected to 

be present.

Ho.noll'Li:, Jan. 11. — Robert Wilcox 
and Samuel Xowlein led half a thou- 
sand Kanakas and half-white royalist- 
in open revolt against the Hawaiian 
republic, Sunday, January (>, inshore 
six miles from this city. The rebel? 
were foiled In the plan to surprise the 
city, which was immediately placed 
under martial law. 

A fight took place at Diamond Head 
between the police and rebels, in which 
Charles L.*Carter. a prominent young 
man. fell mortally wounded. When a 
strong force Was sent from the city, 
the enemy retreated to the recesses of 
the volcano ridges, pursued by the 
troops. Several rotalists were killed 
by shot and shell. Many prisoners 
were taken, including John Lane, a 
half-white leader, who shotf'arter. 

On the flth the troops attacked Wil- 
cox and sixty of the enemy in a valley 
and routed them, with a loss of twenty 
killed. None of- the troops were in- 
jured. ; 

The insurrection is completely 
crushed and tin- rebels who were en- 
gaged in the fighting have dispersed. 
The majority of have come in 
from the front. One hundred are still 
guarding the vallry entrances and 
looking for Wilcox and his men- 
Nothing has been seen or heard of an? 
rebel for twenty-four hours. Wilt-ox 
has probably escaped through Kalihi 
towanl Kwa and is seeking to get off 
the island. 

The government caused the arrest of 
scores of royalists suspected and 
known to have aided in the insurrec- 
tion. Military operations are probably 
at ttrrrnd, but the guarding of the city 
under martial law may be continued 
some days longer. T,he royalists were 
supplied with arms, and ammunition 
from vessels. Grave alarm has also been 

caused by large bodies of Japanese la- 
borers on tho plantations rising in

Business Still ISarknard. Hut There 
Some Good Signs. 

New YoitK, Jan. 19.— K. (1. Dun A

"There are some good signs, but they 
do not as yet extend to business gen-

ready orer $9..i0u,000 for the- month. 
This state of facts, with the failure of 
congress to make provision. for borrow- 
ing, or for increasing the revenue, still 
operates to retard a wholesome recov- 
ery, and the volume of domestic trade 
represented by exchanges through the 
clearing houses is again about 7 per 
cent, larger than last year, as it was in 
the first week of the month, but is 33.7 
per cent, smaller than two years ago, a 
-higher rate of decrease than for some 
time past. 

"Exports from New York for two 
weeks of January have fallen but 
slightly behind last year's, while im- 
ports are about SI. 700.000 larger, owing 
the increase in dry goods.

llsrlrqnln Tactics of tht- Party 

and Itun-omhr. 

There Ta something' amusing' — or 
w.ielil tie if the matter n-erc not it seri- 
mis one- in the repiihlican nttitude 
c oncerning the protests of dormant-, 
Austria and France against our tariff 
legislation antl their threats of retali- 
ation. For fiuite a quarter of a cen- 
tury, and in the cases of some for much 
longer, the republican leaders and nr- 
tt»ns have been telling the people that 
what we need is a "'home market," and 
that the great evil of the affe is foreign 
trade. Volumes of the Congressional 
Record and innumerable columns in 
the papers of the repiil)liean4Jflrlj_b-ftye 
been jjiven to an elaboration of this 
contention: and one result has been 
that a great many of the people, es- 
pecially in the agricultural dis- 
tricts, have been led to believe In 
the argument and to sneer at 
the foreign market as utterly un- 
wnrthy of~ consideration in conipari- 
with the home market. Vet the 





the Htatea »h«o tht 



moment there is u faint prospect of the 

farmer being permitted to keep his 
grain and meat at home for sale here, 
.the. Uvad^rfcaod-oFgatv^-a-re -np in a rm s : 

lambasting the democratic party for 

irritating foreign countries into taking 
the course they threaten. Another 
feature, scarcely less humorous, is the 
solicitude these same organs und lead- 
cr* art- manifesting concerning foreign 
opinion. Almos t as ■ rrhrimrrrtly — a* 
they have advocated the home market 
theory, have they proclaimed their in- 
difference to what foreign countries 
think of ps, or do in reference to us. 
"limit rtave we to do with abroad?" 
was for a long time their pet cry; and 
the severest charge they have ever 
bivie.fe-.'i t against political opponents 
has been one of too much consideration 
for foreign opinion or action. Vet if 
they can be believed they arc all in a 
tremor now because two or three Euro- 
pean nations are dissatisfied with the 
legislation of the Tnitcd States, and 
with one accord they are clamoring for 
deference to foreign threats. It really 
is a very funny ease of backing down 
on the part of the g. o. p. 

' Looking at the matter, however, in 
its serious aspect, the republican atti- 
tude is even more indicative of dishon- 
esty than of rank inconsistency with 
previous professions. The pretense 
they are making is that the protest of 
(iertuany and Austria is based on the 
abrogation of reciprocity: when the 
fact is that it is directed specifically at 
the discriminating duty on sugar for 
the perpetuation of which the repub- 
lican party is just as much rospoiis+ble- 
as anybody. President Cleveland in 
his lu st annual message recommended 
the repeal of that provision in the 
tariff act -nit because of any protest 
from foreign countries, for -none had 
been made — but because the provision 
was the result of domination by the 
i — ri n g. The rcpnhlie &Ba in the 
senate could have prevented the pas- 
sage of the provision . had they 
wished — or. to put the matter ac- 
curately, had they not been ruled 
by the sugar combine, as were 
certain democrats. They could secure 
the repeal of the provision now. but 
it is well known that they have enm- 
bined in the senate to preve nt such r e- 

In every state where d^mrieriitte »t«-t« ~ 

oflioers are. superadded. J?v repnblienn- 
the retiring administration^ go out in 
honor, leaving clean records nnd ne 
charges of financial dishonesty uehin'i 

In states like Illinois and Indiana, 
where democratic state officers are ill 
the middle of their respective terms, 
they have presented to the incoming 
republican legislatures creditable e.x< 
hibits of the conditions of slcto affairs. 
It has lieen the policy of the Hipnh- 
Mean press to calumniate anil trajuce, 
u itliuut reason or measure, every dem- 
ocratic administration and every dem- 
ocrat in office! They could pnxluce. no 
charge of misconduct nor of dishonesty 
founded in trnth. 

Their sole object was to break down, 
by the might of fals ehoo d, abuse and 
slander, every public officer not of their 
partisan faith, distributing the spoils 
*o fhem and their adherents. The 
campaign of accusation without proof 
and of denunciation without cause has 
been monstrous in its injustice and in 
■dree i icy. 

There is not a repori of a defalcation 
nor of any act of maladministration in 
any state that elected democrats to of 
tice in ls'.iti and lS'jj. The financial 
affairs of the democratic states never 
were coTrdrrcted so v 
licatt rule. 

The national administration, ma- 
ligned beyond all precedent and all 
rules of decency, has redeemed in 
great part the pledges Ln the platform 
of Isii:.'. The force act, the McKinley 
tariff act and- the 'Mierman silver act, 
were repealed. 

A new tariff was framed, far from 
perfeet in many of Us features, but 
vastly better than its predeccss. n\ Its 
imperfections were forced on congress 
by a republican-populist-democratie- 
protectionist combine more pernicious 
than any coalition ever before formed 
to pervert legislation in congress. The. 
panic, the currency demoralization and 
the indications of a gold famine .■•.mo 
from vicious and corrupt republican- 
silver and currency ' legislation "Which — 
begun in 18!»3 to produce its disastrous 

These facts show that the democrat- 
ic party is not— as lleed and other par- 
tisans have charged — destitute of ca- 
pacity to administer national and stato 
affairs, with wisdom and success. 

The democrats in congress have not 
been able to agree with the president 
on a satisfactory currency measure. 
This is not so much evidence that they 
lack wisdom for the purpose as that 
the condition of affairs, originating in 
republican mismanagement, is desper- 
ate beyond_ordinary means of redemp- 
tion. The disease, of republican incep- 
tion and growth, requires a remedy of 
unprecedented power and efficacy. That 

is tho eanse of doiiioemtic failure tn 
provide a cure —not doinocratie weak- 
ness and inc'iupetency. 

When the record shall be made up 
for history, the verdict will be that the 
democratic party, while holding power 
in the states and nation, exercised it 
well in the interest of taxpayers for 
the enactment of judicious laws and tc 
conserve the financial interests jf tho

Whether their attitude is due to dom-

John M. Thurston is to be ssnt to oc-

excess of expenditure over revenue ia 
causing all the trouble? 

It is known that Mr. Cleveland is not 
favorable to the income tax. Hut ho 
is in favor of th e raising of _snfficjient.

and it is not likely that he would con- 
sent to surrender thirty millions a year

A bill to supply the needed revenue 
would be a condit ion prec eden t to the 
presidential approval of an act to re- 
peal the tax on incomes. A proposi- 
tion to reenact the McKinley bill, 
which Mr. Quay has already made, 
would not be en tert a in e d by the presi- 
dent. .Besides, the republicans arc

There is the proposition to doubk-

raising a litter of kittens. One day 
the Judge's bora captured three 
young squirrels, brought them home 
iuid presented them to the old eat. 
which adopted them and rendered 
unto them the same motherly care 
shown her offspring, until they 
were grown ami able to shift for 
themselves. _

again engaged rearing another in- 
stallment of young felines, when 
someone of the Judge's family 
caught a young coon and placed it 
in the nest with tiic young kittens.

considerable curiosity and some de- 
give of disgust, but her motherly at- 
tributes were so strong as to over-

At the marriage of a Boone coun-

this week, the groom paid the min-

for his services. The men in the 
party argued the matter over amongst

Mr. Ferry RicC and Miss Emma 
Anderson, of Boone county, were 
married here Wednesday. On Thurs- 
day the groom's mother was here

having the marriage annulled. It is

of age, informed his mother that 
when he married lie was so drunk 
that he didn't know whether he was 
standing on his head or his feet, 
and that he didn't know where or 
by whom he was married. The 
groom's family is yen- prominent 
in Boone county. The bride is a 
daughter of Abe Anderson formerly

the snow Is melting. Iain sure If the 
people would take this advice there 
would be little to t rouble them.

The subject of I>r. Talmage's dis-

But I must not forget that my text 
takes in another cardinal point of the 
compass. It takes in the east. I have 
, to report that in a journey around the 
world there is nothing so much im- 
presses one as the fact that the mis- 
sionaries divinely blessed are taking 
the world for God. The horrible war 
between Japan and China will leave 
the last wall of opposition flat in the

had been allowed to go undisturbed, 
and the grog-shops were open on the

arc thirty-two points of division of the

and my text haiis them, the north,

spread out before us the map of the 
world to see the extent of the gospel 
campaign. The hardest part of the 
field to be taken is the north, because 
our gospel is an emotional gospel, and 
the nations of the far noVth are a cold- 
blooded race. They dwell amid ice- 
^bergs and eternal snows, and everlast- 
ing winters. C.reenlanders, 'Lapland-

is the sledge drawn by reindeer. Their 
apparel the thickest fnrsatall seasons. 
Their existence a lifetime battle with 
the cold. The winter charsres them

with bullets of hail and pounds them 
w ith battering rams of glacier.

reform or vangelism? Will it be law, 
or (tospel? I am glad that a wave of 
reform has swept across this land, and 
all the cities are feeling the ad- 
vantages of the mighty movement. 
Let the good work go on until the 
last — municipal evil is extirpa:ed. 
About fifteen years ago the 
distinguished editor of a New 
York daily newspaper said to 
me in his editorial room: "You 
ministers talk about evils of which 
you know nothing. Why don't you go 
with the officers of the law and explore 
for yourself, so that when 

pression that a man like that would 
cure the abominations of New York 
about as soon as smallpox would 
cure t.fphoid fever, or a buaz-saw 
would render Hayden's "Creation." 
Polities in all our cities has become 
so corrupt that the only difference 
between the republican and demo- 
cratic parties is that each is worse 
than the other. Hut what nothing 
else in the universe can do the Gospel 
can and will accomplish. "They shall 
come from the west," and for that 
purpose the evangelistic batteries arc 
planted all along the Pacific coast as 
they are planted all along the Atlantic 
coast. All the prairies; all the mnimt- 
ntn-.;si; the valleys; all the cities are 
under more or less Gospel influence, 
and when we get enough faith and 
consecration for the work this whole 
American continent will cry out for 
God: "They shall come from the west." 

The work is not so difficult as many 
suppose: "You say: "There are the 
foreign populations." Yes, but many 
of them are Hollanders and they were 
brought up to the love and worship of 
God. and it will take but little to per- 
suade, the Hollanders to adopt the re- 
ligion of their forefathers. Then there 
are among these foreigners so many of 
the Scotch. They, or their ancestors, 
heard Thomas Chalmers thunder and 
Kobert McCheyne pray. JThe breath 
of God so often swept through the 
heather of the Highlands, and the 
voice of God has so often sounded 
through the Trossachs, and they all 
know how to sing "Dundee;" so that 
they will not have often to be invited 
to aeeept the word of John Knox and 
Bothwell Bridge. 

Then there are among these foreign- 
ers so many of the English. They in- 
herit the same language as we inherit 
— the English in wfc'cV 6hakespeare 
dramatized, and Milt"- chimed his 
cantos, and Henry Melville Gospelized. 
and Oliver Cromwell prorogued parlia- 
ment, and Wellington commanded his 
eager hosts. Among these foreigners 
arc the Swiss, and they were rocked 
in a cradle under the shadows of the 
Alps, that cathedral of the Almighty 
in which all the elements, snow, and 
hail, and tempest, and hurricane 
worship. Among these foreigners 
are a vast host of Germans, and 
they feel centuries afterward the 
power of that unparalleled spirit 
who shook the earth when he trod it, 
and the heavens when lie prayed — Mar- 
tin Luther! From all nations our for- 
eign populations have come, and they 
are homesick, for away from the place 
of their childhood, and the graves of 
their ancestors, and our glorious relig- 
Lor> presented to them aright 
will meet their needs, and fill their 
"souls, and kindle their enthusiasm. 
They shall come from amid the wheat 
sheaves of Dakota, and from the ore 
beds of Wyoming, and from the silver 
mines of Nevada, and from the golden 
gulches of Colorado, and from the 
banks of the Platte, and the Oregon, 
and the Srcrainento, and the Columbia.

a well constructed sun dial. The differ-

to sixteen minutes and twenty-one sec

Thine to Ho If Ton 
These Directions. 

Few farmers know the size of their 
fields or how many acres they contain. 
It is desirable— in fnct, indispensable 
—for goot} work that a farmer should 
know this, otherwise, he cannot ap- 
portion seed or manure for it; nor can 
he tell how much time it should take 
to plow, harrow or cultivate it A 
good cotton cord, tho size of a plow- 
line, should be kept for this purpose. 

To make one, buy 07 feet of cotton 
rope, one ineh round, fasten a ring at 
each end, and make these rings pre- 
cisely 86 feet apart This is four rods. 
Tie a piece of red rag in the center. 

One acre of ground will be a piece 
foor of these cords long and two and 
one-half wide, equal to 10x10 rods, 
making 100 square rods to an acre; 

The advantage of the rings is that 
one person can measure by driving a 
stake in the ground to hold the rope 
while he stretches it out. The rope 
should be soaked in tar and then dried. 
This will prevent its shrinking. 

Last year a neighbor of the writer 
had a heavy sod plowed by contract at 
82.50 per acre. Three persons stepped 
it off. One said it was 4 acres; another 
made it a little over 5, and tho third 
said it was S. 1 ^ acres. 

The contractor sent 
this rope, and all five 
it, and it was found 
acres. He had paid to have the grass 
cut off it for three years nt 81 per acre, 
or $5 each season, counting it to be five 
acres in extent, thus losing 84.50

One of Them .should lie In Use on Every 

\Veii-M»n»(crcl Farm. 
A sled or boat that will quickly un- 
load itself, and always be right side 
up, is something that should be in use 
on every farm. To pick up stones and 
other coarse material and place them 
on the boat Is laborious enough with- 
out having to handle them the second 
time when unloading. This labor and 
time may be saved by building the 
boat broader and shorter than is usu- 
ally seen, and mounting it upon run- 


ners, ns shown by the cut. These 
should be rounded at each end and a 
ring placed in either end of the boat 
so it may be drawn in both directions. 
If one desires to have the sled always 
right side np, double runners should 
be used, thus those that are not in use 
as runners serve as side boards for 
holding on the load. This boat is 
quickly inverted and its load left 
wherever desired, by- removing — the 
chain and hitching it on at the back 
end while continuing to draw it in the 
same direction.- harm and Home. 

Mixed Farmlne; In Dry (Seasons. 
It seems to me that such seasons as 
we have had for three successive years 
emphasize the value of mixed farm- 
ing. I know that there are men who 
succeed best as specialists, but they 
are usuall y men o f superi or qualities. 
who would succeed at almost any- 
thing; but the average farmer, with a 
farm not specially adapted to some 
particular product, will generally find 
It safer to grow a little of several 
things. This has always been my rule, 
and in the worst years I have abun- 
dant supplies" for the family of almost 
everything needed, and when I sell the 
surplus and foot up the amounts, 1 
have a fair showing. This plan is 
especially safe for the farmer who ia

large sum of money at once to pay out,

Mr. Sibrlu«i, Kjr.» Jan. 20.— Detec-

been taken, charged with murder. He 
was accompanied by Deputy United 
States Marshal Bird, of Jackson, and 
other officers. When the crowd got off 
the train there was considerable ex-

there would be war between Drake and

Upon arriving at Beattyville Thurs-

county judge of Lee county, w^.o held

No arrests were made Friday, but 
the grand jury is still investigating 
the matter, and has examined a great 
many witnesses. Indictments will 
probably be issued Saturday for five or 
six persons charged with lynchingltlair. 
The lynchers of Blair are known. 
Crowds that assembled in the saloons 
and hotel office openly discuss the sub- 
ject and one or two have admitted that 
they participated. The contest now is 
simply between the law-abidingpeople 
of Montgomery county and Taylor 
Young's influential faction. 

Chief Wilson is known to be friendly 
to Young's sympathizers, and if he has 
the warrants, instead of Jailer Chc- 
nault, as is claimed Friday night, this 
fact is significant. Armed guards still 
attend Judge Cooper's court. Threats 
against Marshal Drake are heard on 
every hand. 

Late Friday night Marshal Drake 
held another conference with Chief of 
Police Wilson, and insisted that a num- 
ber of warrants should be served Sat- 
urday morning. Chief Wilson refused 
and Drake reiterated his threat that 
he would arrest Chief Wilson and 
Policeman Sam G. Turley. Drake was 
told that he could not arrest the offi- 
cers. Chief Wilson said he would die 
first. Turley said to a reporter: 
— "We will di e in ou r-tracks. before we 
submit to Drake. He docs not dare to 
try to arrest us. One hundred of the 
best citizens of Montgomery county 
have told me that they would stand by 
me and that is all I want.

Washington, Jan. 20.— The long par- 
liamentary struggle over the Nicar- 
m gua canal bill came to a close in the 
senate Friday, and the bill was passed 
by a vote of 31 yeas to 21 nays. From 
; o'clock in the afternoon until 5 the 
time was consumed in a discussion in 
which the speeches were limited to flv« 
minutes. It was sometimes carried on 
in a pretty angry fashion, but nothing 
very important or interesting was said 
on either side of the question. 

At 5 o'clock the talk ceased and the 
voting began, the result of the first 
vote indicating a safe majority for the 
bilL Several amendments were ac- 
cepted by Mr. Morgan (dem., Ala.), 
who had charge of the bill, and were 
agreed to, as a matter of course. 

The most important amendment wa«

(apt. McDonald, of the Texas Rangers,

1'ate. with 300 scouts, in case of war. 
Col. Htite served with Ocn. Joe Shelby 
in Mexico at the close of the civil war, 
and at his call thousands would cross

Should war break out to-morrow be- 
en Mexico and Guatemala this 
country would be entirely prepared 
for the emergency, and would have its 
L'o.noo troops now on the Guatemalan 
frontier read to move on the enemy at 
an hour's notice, without waiting for 
supplies or having other hindrances. 
The rifles used in the Mexican army 
are Remingtons, and additional sup- 
plies arc on hand for the arming of any 
additional troops which may lie put 
into the field. Appearances are that 
Mexico will operate on both the north 
and west sides of Guatemala for the 
invasion of that republic should occa- 
sion demand. 

It is prophesied in some quarters that 
Mexico will settle the boundary line 
dispute by appropriating the whole 
Guatemalan republic as a part of the 
United States of Mexico, with the City 
of Mexico as its capital. 

Great activity is evident at the gov- 
ernment arms factory In this city. 
Sixty thousand cartridges, for the use 
of the Mexican array, are being turned 
out every week, and they are being 
rushed to the Cnateinalan border, with 
other supplies, as fast as steam and 
sail can carry them. 

There was a marked silence about 
the government office Sunday in con- 
nection with the Guatemalan episode. 
The same guarded attitude is felt 
when one is in the presence of those in 
a position to know what is the exact 
state of affairs, and a generally un- 
communicative policy is shown. The 
exceeding delicacy of the situation is 
evidently fully appreciated, as is also 
the knowledge that a slip of the 
tongue or a misstep at this moment 
may plunge affairs into a crisis most 

grave in its results.

Bishop McQnald'* Answer. 
RocilKSTEB, N. Y., Jan. 28.— Bishop 
McQuaid gave out the following state- 
ment relative to the dispatch from 
Rome that he has been censured by the 
pope for his serifon against Archbishop 
Ireland: "All thes^tories are manu-

The state department has cteter- 
mined to pursue this course, and if in- 
structions have not actually been scut 
to Minister Crittenden, it is because 
the time is not ripe. 

At last accounts Guatemala had sent 
a synopsis by wire of its re- 
ply to the demand of Mexico for 
an apology and a large indem- 
nity to President Diaz. Minister 
Romero said Thursday his government 
would not take final action on this re- 
ply until the full text had been re- 
ceived by mail. 

He would not, of course, predict the 
probable action of his government, 
but he said he was still confident the 
matter would be settled without war. 

It is well known Guatemala has re- 
fused to accede to the demands of Mex- 
ico for an indemnity, and insists the 
border tract marked out by the 
boundary line commission is correct, 
but in case Mexico refuses to accept 
this view, Guatemala will submit the 
matter to arbitration and abide by the

Being informed that none had been

Then a letter of his own was printed 
giving directions for the preparation of 
the plates, and the plates, themselves 

are still in existence, 

A few indisputable facts are worth 
libraries full of theorie - -Specie pay- 
ments were resumed January 1. 1ST9. 
For the fiscal years from 1879 to 1881, 
inclusive, the redemption of United 
States notes averaged 82.63a.00O per 
annum. All understood that they 
could get gold for greenbacks when 
they wanted it. and. consequently, few 
wanted It. The banks furnished the 
gold needed for export. For the fiscal 
year 1802 the redemptions amounted to 
99,125,006. This was under the Harrison 
administration, and before the elec- 
tion. The distrust caused by the Sher- 
man act and the McKinley bill had al- 
ready begun. For the twenty-seven 
months succeeding the close of the 
fiscal year 1892 the redemptions 
amounted to S2Oii,n00,(K)O. All of this 
period, except thirty-four days, was 
under the McKinley bill. 

Prior to the period of distrust which 
began under Harrison the normal 
amount of gold received for customs at 
New York was about .75 per cent. From 
July 1. 1892, to September ilO, 1894— all 
of which period, except thirty-four 
days, was under the McKinley bill— it 
was only about 12 per cent., and dur- 
ing the last seventeen months only 3.7 
per cent. The movement upon the 
gold reserve, therefore, and the virtual 
suspension of specie payment by tbs 
banks, began under the Harrison ad- 
ministration, and has gone on at an 
accelerating ratio. Aceonnt for it as 
you may. that is the simple fact. Im- 
partial financiers attribute it to the 
Sherman and the McKinley acts. 

It may be asked, what had the Mc- 
Kinley bill to do with it? It certain- 
ly had as-much to do with it as the new 
tariff act. and republican papers say 
that the latter is the cause of the pres- 
ent trouble because it does_not yield 
revenue enough. Now the McKinley 
bill is subject to the same objection. 
The. .republicans deny . this, because. 
they say there was no deficit till 
Mckinley bill was repealed. They try 
to establish this by showing that ther*

Observers of the game of politic* 
have wondered what card the repub- 
licans would play — as they seem in- 
clined to pnt the cnrrency question into 
the discard. Recollrction of the busi- 
ness depression which attended the un- 
certainty as to tariff legislation ought 
to deter the republicans from taking 
up the tariff again. But it seems that 
they hold the tariff a safer issue to dis- 
cuss than the currency, and will try tc 
shift the course of political discussion 
to it. 

Their plan is simple. They eliminate 
from the currency problem everything 
but the least important facto?— name- 
ly, the maintenance of the one hun- 
dred million dollar gold reserve. This, 
they assert, can ea.-ily be kept at that 
point if the tariff is so amended as to 
produce a large surplus annually. To 
reform the currency they would in- 
crease tariff taxation, and upon the 
manner in which this increase shall be 
made they expect political discussion 
to center for the next two years. It i» 
an astnte scheme, and democrats of a 
certain sort may be expected to join in 
it. The cast does not want the car 
rency question exhaustively discussed. 
oecause it knows that the whole force 


of the argument will be against its po- 
sition. It does not want a national 
election to turn on the money ques- 
tion, for it knows that in such evenf 
the west and south would unite for its 

The people, particularly we of the 
west, must not be hoodwinked by this 
shrewd republican scheme. It may b« 
-admitted at once that if the revenues 
are largely increased the gold reserve 
may be maintained, but that in noway 
alters the question. As matters now 
stand the nation is borrowing money 
in order that bankers and gold export- 
ers may get gold, to sell at a profit. 
Under the republican plan the people 
would be taxed higher to the same end. 
Toward remedying the actual evil 
A-hich lies at the bottom of currency 
agitation the republican scheme would 
accomplish nothing. The nation's 
money would still be on the gold basis 
with golu appreciating, and the price* 
of products and of men, therefore, con- 
stantly depreciating. As the produc- 
ing "classes always pay the tariff taxes 
republican domination will mean 
higher taxes for them. As they chiefly 
suffer from the appreciation of gold, 
republican hostility to bimetallism in- 
sures the continuance of their present

believed that .the message will specific- 
ally rec ommend such a cl i u u. Th« ' in - 
u-ntion is to take legislation of this 
kind as the last resort, in case nothing 
better can go through. It is said that 
some concessions will be offered the 
silver men. 

The presence of August Belmont in 
town, and the fact that he has been 
seen in company of Secretary Carlisle 
and Secretary Lament, have led to the 
supposition that Mr. Cleveland is con- 
sidering the advisability of trying to 
place a loan abroad and turning to the 
Rothschild s for the gold which the 
treasury sorely needs. This would 
prevent the New York banks from 
realizing on their conspiracy to draw 
gold from the treasury, and would, it 
hopes, bring gold from Europe instead 
of from our own vaults.

nothing whatever shall be done by this 
congress looking to an increase in the 
revenues. He is persistent that by the

McKinley bill was passed. The habit 
of estimating this surplus at SMOO.OOO.- 
000 is misleading. Mr. Cleveland left 
in 1S89 an aeeumlated surplus of about 
S100.000.000. and besides, the reveuues 
were some ?! 00,000,000 a year in excess 
of expenditures. If the revenue had 
been kept up and expenditures kept 
down during Mr. Harrison's term the 
surplus would have been nearer 8500,- 
000,000 than $100,000,000. A reduction of 
revenue was, therefore, proper if ex- 
penditures had Wen Kepi down. Hut 
the Fifty-first congress, while reducing 
the revenue, increased expenses, and 
this led invariably to a deficit. 

The Harrison administration adopted 
several expedients to avoiel the appear- 
ance of a deficit. First it squandered 
the surplus— not only the surplus in 
March. 1*80, but that which accumu- 
lated between that time and the pas- 
sage of the McKinley bill. Then it 
changed the form of the debt statement- 
Then it seized a trust fund of 955.000,- 
ikk). held for the redemption of the 
l>ank notes, and used that, and much 
of it tvtis not refunded before the expi- 
ration of Mr. Harrison"s term. Then 
finding itself unable conveniently to 
pay more than SJo.OOO.iKK) of bonds due 
September. 1801", it continued them. In 
these various ways, by the shifts and 
evasions of bookkeeping, it contrived 
to conceal the deficiency of revenue 
which existed uuder the McKinley bill. 
If the McKinley bill furnished rev- 
epua equal to expenditures, why was 
the surplus dissipated'.' Why was the 
national bank redemption fund seized? 
Why were 5W:>.000,000 of bonds con tin- 
ued* within less than a" year after the 
McKinley bill was passed? In all but

propriation bill, as reported, carries a 
total of 531.807.023. an increase Of near- 
ly ■ million over the estimate. The 
most important feature of the report is 
the discussion of the necessity for 
three new battle ships and twelve tor- 
petlo l>oats provided for.

Chicago, Jan. 8G. —The board of trade

necessary if the McKinley bill had 
been affording adequate revenue. 

As to the present tariff , it has not yet 
become fully operative. Very little 
duty Iiks lii i o n cnllo o tjMl on sugar and 
none on incomes. It is generally 
believed that after this fiscal year it 
will afford abundant revenue for an 

his general manager that any working- 

man at Homestead who. shall join a 
labor organization will be at once dis- 
charged. At a mooting of the working- 
men employed by Mr. Carnegie his de- 
tectives were present and the next 
morning the workingmen who were 
prominent in the movement were dis- 
charged. Life at Homestead must be 
worse for a workingman than the life 
of a slave in the south in the old plan- 
tation days. The slave at least was 
well fed and well treated, because he 
was property and had to be looked 
after or he would be a loss on his mas- 
ter's hands. The workinf-men at 
Homestead have not even the treat- 
ment of the plantation slave. 

This is the logical result of a protec- 
tive tariff. The tariff raised the price 
of products to the people at large and 
so increased Mr. Carnegie's gains. Tho 
workingmen wanted their wages raised 
in order that, according to the theory 
of the tariff law. they might get their 
share of the results of the robbery of 
the people at large. This resulted in a 
strike because Mr. Carnegie would not 
pay his men any more than he had~td. 
Inthc meantime, the current rate ot 
wages throughout the countTy fell be- 
cause of the heavy burden of taxation 
for protected industries which all 
classes of people had to pay whether 
they were protected or not. Mr. Car- 
negie promptly reduced the wages in 
his protected industry down to the cur- 
rent level. There was another strike 
and the Pinkerton detectives shot the 
workingmen until the survivors were 
willing to return at the wages Mr. 
Carnegie offered. 

Now Mr. Carnegie proposes to refuse, 
to permit his workingmen to organize 
peaceably and lawfully In their com- 
mon interest. Suppose that if for a 
weak or a month the law were to be 
enforced against Mr. Carnegie and sup- 
pose that he were to he punished --ftw

It is only through Dr. Trigg that

only as a courtesy due. from the fact 
that he was so" unfortunate as to

was entitled to his release, and so 
ordered. It will be remembered 
that at the last term of the Circuit 
Court for this county, Weaver was 
fined in three cases, first 825 and 10 
days for carrying brass knucks; sec- 
ond §20 for gaming; third 1 cent 
and cost for assault and battery. It 
required the longest period of" im- 
prisonment to satisfy the judgment 
in the, prosecution for car r ying the 
brass knucks and when that period 
terminated Weaver claimed that the 
other two smaller judgments had 
been satisfied— in other words he 
was serving out three sentences at 
the same time. Jailer Crisler was 
not willing to assume the responsi- 
bility of releasing Weaver at the ex- 
puration--of-- th o l ong es t period-trc^

As the time for the State election 
approaches, an event in which the 
Republicans claim they have most 
excellent chances to capture the 
machinery of State, a dissatisfied 
clement of colored Republican vot- 
ers make their appearance on the 
political horizon, and make some 
remarks that are very annoying to 
those whose leadership they have 
been following in the past. A meet- 
ing was held . in Louisville, a few 
(lays ago, at which the colored 
brethren was not slow in makin" 
known his dissatisfaction at his 
treatment at the hands of the white 
Republicans, and indicated plainly 
that if they were not allowed asharc 
of the loaves and fishes that they 
— weukLeut r loose from the party to 
whkh they have adhered so faith- 
fully in the past, and cast their lot- 
when their political worth will bore- 
„ cognized and accorded mere of the 
good things that come by way ot 
—the political route. The" dissatis- 
fiction is not confined to the Louis- 
ville negroes but extends out into 
the State. A colored voter at Rus- 
Bellville writes to the Herald in a 
vain of anger not to be mistaken. 
Here is his indictment : "The white 
Republicans hate a negro and will 
not vote for him for County Com- 
mitteeman. Only one has been ap- 
pointed in twenty years. The cat 
18 out of the wallet. They will not 
vote for a negro. They say just ap- 
point one who will work for noth- 
ing. Our white Republican hreth- 
care nothing about a negro cx-

Items relative to this county, 
and which appear in the Daily En- 
quirer, are not given much credit, 
and we give the following, which 
appeared in last Thursday's edition 
ol that paper, for what it is worth, 
and vou can fix the price : 

"The residents of Boone, Kenton 
and Grant Counties, Kentucky, are 
agitated to a degree of uneasiness 
over the number of horses which 
during the past month have been 
stolen from them,_ As a preven- 
tion of these depredations, and in 
order to make an example of the 
guilty parties, /rumor has it that 
within a few days a severe whip- 
ping will be administered to several 
of the gang who are known. No 
less than three years ago this same 
section of the Blue Grass region was 
overrun with a band of daring horse 


"So bold did they become that

the desired effect, but the tactics of

nsit to Kentucky until 17G9, eight 
years aftcrthedate of the inscription 
spoken of on the piece of bark, and 
then only came to the border of the 
State and camped and hunted dur- 
ing the winter, Boone could not 
have made the inscription, and be- 
sides, it is quite probable that Daniel 
Boone was never within the present 
boundary of Boone Countv, unless 
he stopped and visited Big Bone 
Springs as he floated down the Ohio 
river past them in his canoe, on his 
way to his future home in Missouri 
in 179"., but Collin's Historv of 
Kentucky does not record the 'fact 
if he did so. Therefore, we feel 
forced to attribute Bro. Gaines' bit 
of historical record to the probable 
energy of some impulsire vouth of 
comparatively recent years, who 
anxious to make his mark (on a tree) 
fell upon this above plan. 

Whilst Daniel Boone had little 
education, yet he could write, as 
autographic letters bear testimony, 
and by the reading of his life and 
adventures, we are told he rarely 
availed himself of this means of 
communication, and we believe 
there is no instance cited by the 
history of our State, of his having 
IcfHttVname or any-other authen- 
tic carving on any of the trees 
throughout all ■'Central Kentucky,' 
where he spent fifteen vears of his 
most exciting and eventful career.

Aii organization has now been ef^ 
fected by the farmers in the coun- 
ties named and it is said with good 
authority that before the close of 
this week two men will be publicly 
whipped at Walton and two at Dry 
Ridge, Ky. Notice has been saved 
on several others with the injunct- 
ion to leave the respective counties 
where they reside or suffer the pen- 
alty. Unless this is. done the edict 
of the residents will be carried out. 
Meanwhile, developments of a sen- 
8ation al characte r are expected." 

Mrs. Mary Vaughn will sell at 
public auction next .Saturday at 2 
o'clock p.m., a lot of furniture, beds 
and bedding one lady's saddle and 
other articles loo numerous to men- 
tion. The sale will be at her resi- 
dence between Burlington and 

with that of our neighboring coun- 
ties, and it is remembered that the 
aver age 

in 18S)o. 'It is as much as the coun- 
ty would sell for. 

The last assessment shows a de- 
crease of 35 in the number of town 
lots, but the total value of that class 
of property is only $1;2G0 less than 
in 18&3,consequently the decrease in 
the number of those lots has very 
little effect on the total valuation oi 
taxable property in the county. 

.Stock men are not taking as much 
interest in horses as they have been 
for several years past^ and where 
the assessor found in 1893, 3G 
thoroughbred mares and colts, in 
1894 he found only one, and that 
was listed at the modest sum of $50, 
while the 3,42-1 common plugs are 
valued at $42 each. This indicates 
that a common plug horse in Boone 
county has nearly as good standing 
as his aristocratic neighbor, who 
can boast of its celebrated ancestors. 
It appears that the people had 
more money at their command in 94' 
than they bad in 1893, their bank 
account in the former year exceed- 
ing that of the latter year by $7,263, 
while they had $5,000 more cash in 
their pockets. Right here it might 
be remarked that the statements of 
the banks of the county show a 
much larger deposit than the tax- 
payers have reported to tbeassessor.

on the decline in this county for

Thus it is seen with what rapidity 
the popularity and value of a farm-

to sell something at a good price

very much pleased with your closing 
remarks, where you Insisted upon the 
cooperation of parents and teachers. 
This is absolutely necessary to a well 
regulated school, fnrents, it is your 
duty, pure and simple. The teacher 
can not acquire that higher aim for 
which she is striving without your co- 
operation. The mind of the child is 
very active and Its character is being 
daily molded at school for which the 
teacher is very largely responsible, and 
can you afford to remain at home while 
this most Important work is being done. 
I most emphatically answer in the 
negative. Visit your school, eucourage

interest is your interest, A few encour- 
aging words from you have a magic ef- 
fect and help to lighten the burden of 
a teacher's life.

received the nomination resolutions 
were passed to this effect: That hereaf-

the candidate should say who the can-

candidate for the district, therefore do- 
ing away with mass meetings in each 
county to appoint delegates to the dis-

to right Gallatin is entitled to the can-

say who he shall be and the people of 
Boone and Owen must acquiesce in the

cause of an empty treasury or anything 
else pertaining to the weflfare and in- 
terest of their party or State. From 
what I read the empty treasury of the 
State was not caused by any extrava- 
gance on the part of the Democratic 
party, but was caused in several ways. 
First the Treasurer of the State tells us 
that the tax rate is too low to raise suf- 
ficient money to pay the running ex- 
pense of the State. The Democrats arc 
not to be censured for this, because it 
takes more money to run our State now 
than it did in years gone by. This was 
caused by the new Constitution that 
cost the people the sum of $735,000, be- 
sides Increasing the annual expense of 
the State thousands of dollars. But 
everybody wanted it— both Democrats 
and Republicans and they alike voted 
for its adoption and it carried by a ma- 
jority of 140,000. The Republicans were 
the first and foremost in its advoca- 
cy. In 1800 when the Democratic party 
reduced the rate of taxation that act 
caused the State to^receive annually 
$250,000 less with which to meet their 
demands. When the people demanded 
a change in the manner of taxing 
banks, that took from the treasury an- 
other sum which annually amounts to 
about $110,000. When the iproperty of 
the State was assessed iu 1894, it was 
valued at $25,000,000 less than tha year 
before, and the State received $106,000 
less from taxes from this source. With 
this decrease in receipts to $466,000 an- 
nurljy, and Increase of running expens- 
es put upon the state by changing the 
constitution, it Is a terrible thing for 
the State to run out of money. The 
Democrats made a mistake by reducing 
the rate of taxation in 1890. So we see 
it was no extravagance or illegality on 
the part of the Democrats in running 
the expenses of the State ; yet they 
are ceusured by a great many, when 
they have no just cause.

To the Editor of the Rtconltr : 

After a long silence and a great deal 
of deliberation over the affairs of the 
country, I have about give up up the 
ghost, "and where am I ? When I was 
at Cray Cables I studied theTariffand 
Money question, which is aud has 
caused so much trouble with the affairs 
of the government— thought then if I 
was In Congress could frame a bill that 
would be the very thing for the best 
interests of the people} but now have 
returned to the city, where I meet so 
many different ones and they all have 
ditFereut ideas, have about come to the 
conclusion I could not frame anything 
(not even a post hole.) 

Now, as to the ^Senatorial candidates 
and their views There is Mr. Black- 
burn. I like him very much, and also 
Mr. McCreary and Sir. Buckner, and 
so with all of tire probably candidates, 
but yet there is something with all of 
them that does not exactly fill the bill, 
so I am like the old maid that prayed 
for a husband, "anybody, Lord," so he 
is a Democrat. When I say Democrat, 
I mean a man that will stand up for 
Democratic principles all the time and 
aud under all circumstances, aud not 
policy ; and that is what is the matter 
with'the Democratic party to day and 
has been for sometime. We have too 
many in the party that are for policy 
nnd not priricmre;— I-waut a man that 
will stand up for right and cannot bo 
biased by any motive that pertains to 
self interest. 

When wc till the offices of both State 
ov tiovernment with that class of men 
then we will have a party that is iu- 
vineible, aud a prosperous people ; but 
when we have men to represent us that 
will say you tickle me and I will tickle 
you, then we may expect trouble iu 
the party. Let us be represented by 
men from the lowest to the highsst of- 
fices, that aro pure and will stand by

up for further operations. If the cocoa 
i» wanted for drinking purposes, it is 
ground into a flouilike substance and

The secret of mBking chocolate and 
cocoa— for each maker has his well- 
guarded secret— is in the blending of 
several varieties of cocoa beans. Not 
less than three kinds and up to half a 
dozen varieties are mixed and blended 
nt some stage of the process, and here 
again a trade secret is guarded, for 
some makers mix before and others 
after grinding, and still others at oth- 
er places in the making. It is this 
blending which makes good or bad 
cocoa according to the taste of the man 
whoisdriuking it In the blending 
the cocoa-maker shows his art, and he 
keeps the formula locked in a secret 
drawer of his safe and looks verv wise 
when anything is said about "blend-

quire tempering in a hot room for a 
timo, and others are run into a cold 
room, whore the pipes of a refrigerat- 
ing machine keep the mercury'duwn to 
zero, as soon as the paste runs out of 
the grinding mills. The familiarchoc 
olate packages made up like little 
bricks united by thin webs at the bot-

quartcV~of pound of chocolate. For 
confectioners the chocolate is made

There are, we must admit, doplorable 
facts, and we would not hide or minify 
them. Wc arc not much encour-

city begins by a proposition to 
the liquor dealers to break the law bv

Never since America was discovered I 
has there been n worse insult to sobri-

mists represent, i would think it was 
hardly worth saving. If after hun- 
dreds of years of Gospel iuatmrr. no im- 
provement has been' made, let us give 
it up and go at something else besides 
praying and preaching. My opinion is 
that if wo had enough faith in quick 
results and could go forth rijrhtly 
equipped with the tiospel calf the 
battle for God and righteous- 
ness would end with this

what a jolly farmer said as he entered 
our sauctum. How is that? Why, 
says he, Salzer's seeds not only grow 
but they produce enormously. Had I 
planted a few acres more of his oats, 
wheat, corn, potatoes, grass and clover 
seeds, I would have had to double the 
capacity of my barns; that would have 
cost me 81,200. It is a fact that if yon

pounded this medicine of vegetable ingredi- 
ents which had an especial effect upon the 
stomach and liver, rousing the organs to 
healthful activity as well as purifying and 
enriching the blood. By such means the 
stomach and the nerves are supplied with 
pure blood; they will not do duty without it

Washington, Jan. 29. — The president 
sent to both houses of congress Monday 
a message on the financial situation as 

In my last annual message I commended to 
the serious consideration of the congress the 
condition of national linanauH, und In connec- 
tion with the subjects Indorsed tho plan of 
currency legislation which at that lime seemed 
to furnish protection against impending dan- 
ger This plan has not been ap proved by the 
congress. In the meantime the situation has 
so changed und the emergency now appears so 
threatening that I deem It my duty to ask at 
tho hands of tho legislative branch of the gov- I 
ernment such prompt and effective actum us I 
will restore conlldence in our Unanclal sound- l 
ness and avert business disaster and universal I 
distress among our people. 

Whatever nitty be tho merits of the plan out- 
l lnod In my annual message as a remedy for Ills 
then existing nnil as a safeguard against the 
depletion or Hie gold reserve then in the treas- 
ury. I am now convinced that Its reception by 
the cougress and our present advanced stage 
of Unanclal pctplexity necessitate additional 
or d fferent 'cglslatlon. 

With natural rosources unlimited In variety 
and productive strength, and with a people 
Vhoso activity and enterprise seek only a (air 
opportunity to achieve national success and 
greatnessrour progress should not be cheeked 
by a false financial policy and a heodlcss dis- 
regard of sound monetary laws, nor should ';he 
timidity and fear which ihcy engender stated in 
the way of ou ■ prosperity. 

It Is hardly disputed that this prcdlcsinont 
confronts us to-day. Therefore, no one. In any 
degreu responsible for the making nurt execu- 
tion of laws should fill to 'sec patriotic duty 
In honestly and s ince re ly attempting to re- 
lieve the situation. Manifestly this effort will 
not succeed unless It Is made untrammclcd by 
tho prejudloo of partisanship and with nstead- 
fast determination to resist the temptation to 
accomplish patty advantages. 

Wc may well remember that if wo are ihreit-

The Chinese answered it with unusual 
spirit, but many of their guns were dis-

The Central News correspondent in 
Wei-IIai-Wei telegraphs under date of 
February 1, via Tallen Wan: "The 
Chinese warships were much damaged 
in Thursday's fight After the Paichi- 
yaso forts capitulated, the Japanese 
turned the captured guns against the 
Chinese warships, hitting them repeat- 
edly, and forcing them to change their 
position. A violent snowstorm in the af- 
ternoon of January 31 compelled the 
Japanese fleet to remain inactive, nnd 
thus frustrated the Japauese plan to 
bring on a general naval engagement. 
The Japanese still hold the entrance 
to the harbor." 

— A Ce n tr al N ews-dispatch serf! from 
Hai-Chong on Friday says that the 
Viceroy Liu Kung Ti has arrived at 
Ncw-Chwang, and will have supreme 
command of the Chinese operations in 
Manchuria. Gen. Nodsu, the Japanese 
commander, expects to be attacked 
Monday or Tuesday. His spies report 
that there are about 50,000 Chinese 
troops in the neighbornood of Yeng- 
Kow and New-Chwang. 

The Central News has this dispatch 
from Shanghai: "A Chin-Kiang dis-

Ihe bill should pass the house, the pos- 
sibility of its success in the senate wilj 
be considered in the cabinet meeting 
Friday, and unless there are some 
changes in the situation the order will 
be promulgated then. 

The administration delays action be- 
cause it does not wish to give its erities 
in congress an opportunity to charge 
that, in its eagerness to sell bonds and 
recoup the gold reserve, it could not 
wait to see whether congress was going 
to take any action on the president's 

Assistant Secretary Curtis ascertain- 
ed in New York that within three days 
after the appearance of a bond circular 
an issue of 8100,000,0!)0 four per cent, 
bonds would be taken up. On the 
understanding that a lnind sale is cer- 
tain, the gold exporters of New York 
have practically agreed not to 
continue their raid on the reserve. 
TI is believed that die government will 
fix the term of the bond at July 1, 1V)7, 
when the four per cents outstanding 
will mature, instead of for a term of 
th ; rty j-ears. The period of the bonds, 
however, has not been definitely deter- 

The only prominent democrat in 
congress who still believes that the 
administration may avoid a bond issue 
is the ever-sanguine Springer. The 
Illinois man is confident even now that 
the administration scheme will weather 
congress, and within twenty-four hours 
he has declared that the secretary of 
treasury has not made up his mind tc 
a sale of bonds. Springer is not in the 
administration's confidence, and neith- 
er the president nor the secretary of 
the treasury consults with him any 
more than is absolutely necessary for 
the conduct of business in the house. 
Dis suppositions with reference to the 
policy of the administration are as ei^ 
ratic nnd improbable as his attempts at 
fashioning legislation have thus far 
been unsuccessful.

How to Check the Tremendous Draft nn 
the National Treasury. 

The. "ciitilfc.M- chain" is pumping gold 
out of the treasury at a rate which 
gives concern to the administration 
und delight to the silver crowd. The 
withdrawal on Friday. January 25, 
amounted to W.yso/KX), which was more 
than ever before in one day. 

The withdrawals for that week were 
S12.:>80,000; for the present month, to 
tin- end of last wetk, S2s,2fi.1,.">74, and 
for December. 831.203.091. Since De- 
cember 1. or in fifty-seven days, the 
treasury has had to pay out $o9,4'ifi,665 
of gold coin in redemption of green- 
backs and Sherman notes, or more than 
was realized from the last bond sale of 

»S< (.000,000. 

C)n Decern her 10. shor 
last issue of bonds was paid for, the 
amount of the gold reserve, or net gold, 
was «10;.«21,4-!9. Tt isfnow reduced to 
S5d.7o2 r SiiL This is not so low as it was 
on August 20, when it was 8S2. 499,787, 
but it is about 83,000.000 less than it 
was when the last lot of bonds was put 
upon the market. 

It is not surprising, therefore, that a 
new issue is looked for and that various 
rumors in connection with it have been 
put afloat. From the state of the treas- 
ury when the issues of February and 
November were made the inference is 
that, in the opinion of the administra- 
tion, it is not safe to allow a reserve to 
lip reduced as low as 850,000,000. From 
this, and from what the president said 
in his annual message last month, it is 
reasonable to expect that another lot 
of bonds will be offered for sale very

Steps Are Being Taken to Meet the Demand

Washington, Feb. 4. —The officials 
of the Marine- hospital service havo 
been notified by Parke. Davis & Co., of 
, Mirh— .— tlmt Hip --tfrr»T*'Tr~-in: 
antitoxine has been so widespread 
that they have taken up the subject 
with the view to relieve the heavy de- 
mand for the article in this countryr 
which the foreign houses have not been 
able to meet . and they expect to have 
their product ready for the market 
early in March. 

There seems to be no further doubt, 
say the Marine hospital officials, as to 
the value of antitoxine, when properly 
handled, as a weapon against the 
ravages of diphtheria, and it is to be 
a question of but a short time when 
the supply in this country will be 
equal to the demand.

Shipment of Oyster* to Knglaml Stupped. 

Nkw Youk, Feb. 4. — The typhoid 

fever scare has been the means of sti>p- 

IHi K'lv the glllpniPllt nf Amprt- 

can oysters to England; About .1.000 

worth quoting in this crisis of treasury 
affairs. It is as follows: 

"I cannot for tbe moment believe that any of 

our citizens are deliberately willing that their 

government should default In Its pecuniary 

obligations or that its financial operations 

| should be reduced to a silver basis. At any 

was done 
if I omitted any effort I could make to avert a 
calamity. As long, therefore, as no provision 
is made for the final redemption or the putting 
aside of the currency obligation now used to 
re peatedly and constantly draw from the gov- 
ernment its gold, und as long as no better au- 
thority for bond Issues Is allowed than at 
present exists, such authority will be utilized 
whenever and as often as it becomes necessary 
to maintain a sufficient gold reserve, and in 
abundant time to save the credit of our coun- 
try and make good the financial declarations 
of our government." 

But it is getting to be a serious ques- 
tion how many of these bond issues 
will be necessary to accomplish the 
purpose staled in the above passage. It 
became necessary to borrow some 858,- 
ooo.UOO last February, and as much 
more in less than ten months, and now, 
in less than two months, the last lot of 
gold borrowed is more than exhausted, 
and the end is not in sight. 
— The r e is Just one way. and Only one, 
to maintain gold payments and yet put 
a stop to the working of the "endless 
VhaTrT." That way is to authorize the 
secretary of the treasury to retire the 
legal tenders as fast as he redeems 
them, and give him the means of doing 
so. The president is reported to have 
said so lately: and he is- right beyond 
all question. If the legal tenders must 
be returned to circulation as fast and 
as often as they are redeemed there is 
no telling how many times it will be 
necessary to borrow gold only to see it 
drawn out again. 

Kfo act of congress authorizing some 
other kind of bond will make any dif- 
ference. It is not a question of the 
kind of bond, but of protecting the 
treasury against the danger of having 
the4egal tenders presented again and 
again for redemption, and that can 
only be answered by making the re- 
demption flnnl. 

But we are told th a t , the rapublic ri n s 

Ilia FntlU Effort* to JUIIava taa atrula 
on th* Trwaaarr. 
It in announced, with much flourish 
of trumpets, by the republican organ* 
that Mr. Sherman has come to the res- 
cue of the democrats, announced to. 
them what ought to be done to relUv* 
the present situation, and what tbe re- 
publicans will do if the task is left to 
them. Unfortunately for the organ* 
that have derived great satisfaction 
from this obvious humiliation of the 
democrats and the demonstration of 
the superior wisdom of the republicans, 
who alone can furnish a statesman 
equal to the duty of the hour, Senator 
Sherman denies that he has been play- 
ing the part assigned to him. H» says 
that he has simply put his own viet*a 

,& rtuiuirtui into tK-\ f^am £\t a. 

bill; that he does not pretend that it 
embodies the policy of the republican 
party, and that he is not sure that he 
would himself adhere to It. In con- 
firmation of this polite refusal to 
be made a hero on the part 
of Mr. Sherman, we have the 
statements of various republican sena- 
tors that they will make no sug- 
gestions until the responsibility shall 
have fallen upon them, and the partic- 
ular statement of Senator Allison thai 
what the situation demands is simply 
more revenue to be got from taxation. 
So Senator Sherman as a rescuer with- 
draws from the stage. 

Nevertheless, Mr. Sherman is a very 
able man, of much Influence In hi* 
party, and it is worth while examining 
what he thinks — though only tjrovia- 
ionally— is required. It is very simple. 
His bill contains two propositions. One 
is the issue of bond* under the aet ol 
1875, or of three per cent, five-year cer- 
tificates ot indebtedness, to supply de- 
ficiencies in the revenue and for "re- 
demption" purposes under the act of 
1875. The second is that banks may 
issue notes to the- par value of these 
certificates. That is all there is in the 
Sherman bill, and all that can be got 
out of it. It la good enough as far aa 
It goes, but it is utterly inadequate, 
because it does not provide for the can- 
cellation of redeemed notes and leaves 
the deadly act of 1878 unrepealed, to 
destroy whatever good effect the new 
loans might have. There is no need of 
specific legislation now to authorize 
issues under the act of 1875. The au- 
thority exists. It has been acknowl- 
edged by tbe republican administra- 
tion, and used by the democratic ad- 
ministration. The issue of certificates of 
indebtedness for deficiency of revenue 
is the only substantial thing in Mr. 
Sherman's plan. It is. as we have said, 
very good so far as if, goes, but 
no measure will secure the treasury 
against the drain of its gold reserve, or 
establish tbe complete stability of the 
curre n cy , or f a irly r es tor e confid e nc e 

in congress will not permit that to be 
done so long as they have the power 
t o kill anythin g t hey pleas e in the sen-

There is talk to the effect that the 
president is willing to make consider- 
able concessions to the silver men if they 
will assist in passing a bill for the Re- 
tirement of legal tenders. Hut to make 
concessions to the silverltes would only 
be going from bad to worse. It is too 
much silver that ails us now. It is in 
that, and that only, that the danger 
lies of a sudden drop to the silver basis 

at home and abroad that does not pro- 
vide for the cancellation of the legal 
tender notes. That is the very core of 
all our trouble, and Mr. Sherman does 
not propose to touch it. — N. Y. Times. 


The Republicans Ignoring Their Outy to 
th* Nation. 

The republicans in congress ought to 
join in passing a bill for the protec- 
tion of the treasury, for three reasons; 

First — It is the requirement of pa- 
triotism. They cannot, as some of 
their narrow partisans advise, "leave 
the democratic party in a hole" with- 
out leaving the country "in a hole." 
It is the national treasury that is em- 
barrassed. It Is the nation's credit tha* 
is in peril. National bankruptcy 
would mean universal disaster. To 
seek a partisan advantage in such an 
emergency is monstrous. 

Second — The r epublicans a rp at 

least equally responsible with the 
democrats for the present trouble. 
It was a republican congress and ad- 

do-hnt -thlnlfttratinn. that squandered the sur- 

plus of 8100,000,000, that ran the ex- 
penditures up to a billion dollars, 
that passed the McKinley act which 
cut off $50,000,000 of revenue, that 
passed the Sherman act adding over 
8150,000,000 to the legal-tender paper 
currency threatening the gold reserve, 
and that scored a net loss of 812?,- 
000,000 in gold to the country in four 
years and reduced the treasury'* 
free gold $97,000,000 in the same time. 
These are the precedents and puls- 

the very thing which the president | sant ea" 8 *- 8 of the present currency and 

rightly regards as a calamity. Any 
concession to the silverites would re- 
sult in a still more rapid withdrawal of 
gold from the treasury and an early 
suspension of gold payments. — Chicago

H ". IX. Morrison to a Republic reporter. 
"They can't kill it. It was born in 
eternal truth, founded upon the bed- 
rock of the people's liberties and the 
true principles of honest and econom- 
ical government. It has buried in ob- 
livion many other political parties, and 
it will live to see the grass grow on

shall pass now the new congress must

The republicans will control by a ' 
great majority the house In which 
revenues must originate. With a free- 
silver or greenback majority in the 
house and the populists holding the 
balance of power in the senate, will 
their dilemma be easier than it now
